    Yes, try removing them and putting in some PC100 and see what happens. If it boots, then the PC133 ram is not compatible (PC133 is mildly sketchy in a G3, but it often works provided each stick isn't larger than 256mb). Also, there is a lot of PC100 and PC133 RAM out there, make sure the ones you have are Mac compatible...

    If swapping out the RAM doesn't work, post back. With proper punctuation/capitalization preferably. ;)
