It's not hard at all. Usually the power jumpers are labeled. Just touch something to them for a second...the moment you connect them it'll turn on. That's exactly the same thing that the power button does. It won't spark or anything, and there's no risk of shocking yourself. The hardest part is removing whatever you jumped it with without touching the pins again. If you accidentally touch them while it's in the bios it turns the computer off.
From there, a lot of motherboards have an option in the BIOS that allow the keyboard to turn on the computer...use that. (you may need a PS/2 keyboard to do it...not sure. There are adapters though, if you do.)
