This is the specifications of the memory you need:-

Memory for Apple iMac G3 350MHz, 400MHz, 500MHz, 600MHz, and 700MHz models at OtherWorldComputing.com

Most PCs use cheaper high density memory and Apple Macs, particularly G3 and G4's must use low density modules. No doubt the ones you purchased are high density and either the machine cannot boot from it, or it will cause what ios known as a kernel panic attack.

Suggest you buy memory from an Apple source, not Apple branded which is heavy man heavy.

OWC are Mac specialists who have lifetime warranty on memory and are the cheapest, even for us down under.

Also this might clear things up a little about high and low density memory:-
