Well, if you can get a small debian (or other) floppy disk to boot, you 
can use dd to image one drive to another, but you'd still have to 
transplant the drive into the imaging G3...  (unless I'm 
misunderstanding your setup)

I don't know how to do what you desire with any MACOS -- but David Trask 
I think has mentioned a few things they do in Maine, home of the billion 
iBooks, to image drives quickly.

If a macintoshOS solution is your desire, I can't help, sorry!
