I've been wanting to do the same thing. I even tried installing MacOS
on a spare partition, setting the correct setting from the Energy
Saver control panel, testing that it does work in Mac OS but after
rebooting with the Debian Woody installation floppies (I already have
Debian installed on this machine), mounting / and running quik, the
autoboot after power failure no longer works. This is on a Mac
7300. My test consists of pulling the power plug on a running system
waiting for the disk to spin down and plugging the power back in again.

There is a very unusual double chime when rebooting after running quik
from the Woody install floppies. Could there be any hardware
resetting going on at that point that would again disable the mac
server mode setting?
