Hmm, if you still have the original processor, then give it a try. There
can theoretically be some problems with software not meant for a G3, but
that _should_ not be problem in your case. It might be for OF, but
that's long gone when you install...

On the other hand, some systems were rather sensitive to hardware
changes. You never know...
