I don't think so, I could be wrong though. You have re-format the drive to switch from Apple to PC. Sucks I know.

No, if your ipod is Windows formatted, then you're fine: Mac's will recognise a win ipod and you won't have to change anything.
I did the same when i switched with my gen2 ipod...
Just make sure you set it up for manual sync though, otherwise it will wipe off any music on the winpod that's not on your mac!

But if you format it for Apple, it won't work on your PC.

BTW, when did Apple build a laptop with a G3 2000????? The fastest G3 laptop was tha last G3 iBook, running at 900MHz
