I had a bad time partitioning too. I was using a G4. Not sure about pdisk,
but bsdlabel and fdisk are not as helpful when on PPC architecture.
I don't know if the OSX install disc will load up on a G3 or not. If it
does, then you are in luck! Boot up off the CD and use Disk Utility from the
top-menu after selecting your install language.
Partition as you would, but leave a small HFS partition laying around just
in case you get around to making it bootable off the hard disk... that will
be the next challenge if you do get the partitioning working for you.
