touble making Power Mac 7200 boot directly into Linux

Installation of Debian 2.2 went fine (booting MacOS on an external disk
and using BootX to boot into Linux works fine).
Right now I'm not able to boot directly into Linux - I have to boot
MacOS and then use BootX to get Linux running.

root@mac:~# cat /etc/quik.conf
root@mac:~# quik -v

Any help is appriciated.
