If you have network available you can also try to install a tftp server

The procedure is available here:

You mentioned you had an x86 machine. You could put your tftp server there and remove it after the G3's up and running.

The data connection for the CD-ROM is standard. If you have a working CD-ROM lying around you could take the skins off the iMac and hook it up. Don't worry about the audio traces.

In the event the disk is partitioned, you could use the MAC OS to put the bootstrap on an HFS partition and boot it from OF. But proceed carefully you won't get another chance after repartitioning the disk for debian.
