Re: iMac G3 unable to boot up
The solution posted above is simply false. G3 iMacs can run up to OS X 10.4.
G3 iMacs need firmware updates before certain versions of OS X can be loaded. You should check the available firmware updates at the Apple site and apply any your machine is missing. This may be difficult to do if you have locked up your machine by attempting to install an OS update without the appropriate firmware update.
I feel confident I could get your machine unlocked in the shop, but I would have to try several strategies which are too complicated to describe over a low-bandwidth text channel like this.

Download your program. Make sure it is for YOUR OS. A .dmg should appear on your desktop when it is finished. Double click that. It should open a file with an application icon and a drive icon on the desktop. Open your applications folder from your hard drive, then drag the application icon to that. Eject the drive icon from the desktop by dragging it to the trash.
It would be very difficult to open up the imac to retrieve the disc as the CD drive is totally enclosed and would probably result in it not be functional after removing the disk. Have a look at the following article on the apple website http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3007?viewlocale=en_US as it does indicate that the slot loading imac does have a hole for paperclip ejection. You could also try opening up disk utility and and clicking on the icon of your disk under the left hand column then go up to eject button and click eject. Hope this helps.
