Since your chances of finding an Airport card for the G4 iMac are just about zero, I would suggest you startlooking for a wireless USB dongle.

This article may help you to find a card for your iMac
If you decide to go with the wifi dongle make sure the it comes with a driver that is compatable with the version of OS X your Mac is running.

Do you really have?
iMac, Mac OS X (10.0.x)
Here is how to find out what version of Mac OS you are running:
Click on the blue apple in the upper left hand of the screen.
click on this icon
Click on the first line, "About This Mac"
Most of these are numbers & that's what we want.
What version & Processor do you have?
If you have 10.0, the only thing that will work are the ethernet bridges. Examples.
- Ethernet Bridge
- Airport ExpressAirport Express is an external unit and you can configure it as a bridge. 802.11n ( I believe you will need a more modern version of Mac OS X to configure. Sadly, Apple uses a configuration program to configure, not a web browser. )
Please note this requires mac os x 10.5 or greater to configure or windows xp to configure.
Ethernet Bridge "The versatile Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge can make any wired Ethernet-equipped device a part of your wireless network." from linksys example: http://www.amazon.com/Linksys-RE1000-Wireless-N-Range-Extender/dp/B005FDXMJS/ref =sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1314563758&sr=8-1
Once configured, you can use it on any ethernet port.
