I believe the only G4 you can swap in there are on the upgrade processors (Sonnet, etc.). If you put a standard G4 CPU in a G3 I'm not sure what would happen, but if you'd like to keep your PowerMac around, I wouldn't be the first one to try it.

12" Powerbook G4 1.5GHz/512MB/Superdrive/100GB Seagate Momentus 7200.1
PowerMac G3 B&W 350MHz/1GB/DVD-RW/Adaptec 39160 2X Seagate 36GB 15k RAID0
Dell E521 AMD X2 4600+/2GB/7600GT/320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10
