for the hundreth time this is a VERY recent feature of newworld
OpenFirmware, its only available on ibooks, AGP G4s (not PCI G4s or
G3s) and other machines made late 2000 and on.  its not available on
all newworlds, and not on ANY oldworlds.  its also NOT a feature of
the OSX bootloader, its very recent versions of OpenFimrware.
