this Quicktime movie shows you the basics of what you’re doing.
It is for replacing the video card, but the way to put a new card in is the same.
There are 4 slots in your G3. The first one should hold the graphics card and the bottom one probably holds a controller card for your harddrive. The two in the middle could either be empty or hold a SCSI
card. You will want to remove the phillips screw that holds the little back plate next to an empty slot, remove the plate and pop in the card. Make sure it settles well into the slot and replace the phillips screw. That should do the trick.
The card should definitely work if you’re running OS X.
