1st off - how far does the machine boot, and does it have a FireWire or IEEE1394 port. The simple answer to your question is first to obtain a Mac OS X boot disc - this could cost rather a lot, and you may find it cheaper just to purchase a iMac G3 with Mac OS X pre-installed. And once you obtain the bootdisc, grab an external FireWire CD/DVD drive and use that to install it
Mac Pro/2.8Ghz/12GB/1TB; MacBook Air 11"/1.4Ghz/2GB/64GB;
MB 2.1CD;iPad 16GB/3G.PB G4/1.67Ghz;eMac 700Mhz;PM G4/Dual 867Mhz, PM G4/450Mhz;iMac G3;iBook G3;iPods etc.

reset pram ,repair permissions,install firmware update , install osx panther or tiger (panther runs faster on the g3 imac )

Intelligence does not need Intel inside,
All it needs is good sense outside.
