I've noticed that my G3 has begun to take a very long time to start as 
well.  5 minutes, even if I do a restart from the pull down menu.  5 
minutes no matter what.  and 5 minutes of just a gray screen, with 
nothing.  Then it comes to a folder with a blinking question mark for 
about 20 seconds, and THEN it proceeds to boot up.

Also, ever since I put a new SuperMac card and dual monitors on my Quadra 
800, it takes about a good 30 seconds from pressing the powerbutton to 
get any video and proceed to startup.
