If you are using a stock debian kernel, sysrq should be on. Check out
existence of file /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq and its content (should be 1)

if 0, add "kernel.sysrq=1" in /etc/sysctl.conf and do a "sysctl
-p /etc/sysctl.conf as root.

btw, i am still wondering how to enter sysrq sequences on my ibook g4

but then it never freezes :p

Maybe you should spend some time regarding theses freezes instead.
