you can have quik run a OpenFirmware callback command to boot the
/AAPL,ROM device which will boot macos.  see the quik.conf man page
for this.

however quik is an OpenFirmware bootloader which means you will not be
able to see its interface until your video hardware is supported
directly by OpenFirmware.  most Oldworlds barly had support for the
built in apple video hardware, and no support for anything else.  you
will need a serial terminal to interface with OpenFirmware/quik.
