I've done this and the G4 800 Mhz boots up from system 9 on the old iMac G3 just fine, but when I boot up from its system 10.2.8, it runs for only 5 minutes or so and the grey screen comes down telling me to re-boot.  I've run Norton on the system 9 disk and system 10 disk utilities on the system 10 disk of the old iMac G3 and all is fine with it.  Is there some incompatibilities with running the old iMac G3 230 Mhz from the G4 800 Mhz that causes this to happen?  I can access all my old files on the iMac G3 when I boot up with extensions off (holding down the shift key when I boot up), but I would like to be able to use the USB functions when I boot it up.
