Go to disk utility on the the G3 PPC with Panther. Then try formatting but first go to the Erase tab then select Mac OS Extended (Journaled). And tell me if this works.

Your Intel Mac probably made a GUID instead of an Apple Partition Map (for PPC Macs) when it formatted new hard drive.

Google those terms. *I think* GUID is what it's called for Intel Mac formatting.
