I don't think you'll have much luck with booting one of the old clones.  I don't think
those old power computing machines had an openfirmware that worked the same as the
iMacs.    I tried booting the old apple G3 all-in-one machines before as well with no
luck.  I think you need an iMac Bondi G3 or newer.  I know Chuck Liebow has booted the
real old 52XX series (nubus macs) but that takes a ton of manual tweaks to accomplish.
