not on an oldworld it won't.  

1) the option key trick is a very recent feature to OpenFirmware on
AGP G4s and ibooks.  it will not work on any G3s or PCI G4s.  

2) debian CDs are not and won't be bootable on OldWorld hardware in
the forseeable future.  (until someone writes an Oldworld bootloader
that does not require proprietary Apple drivers)
