I have changed the BIOS parameters, turned off the PC without fully rebooting the system, and tested the Wake-on-LAN (WOL). The PC turned on and rebooted without any problems.

Once the PC fully booted into linux (Fedora 7), I shutdown the system with and I was no longer able to wake the PC over LAN. This meant that linux had disabled WOL on my NIC. So, I have used ethtool to enable it, and here is the response I got.
/sbin/ethtool eth0
