On my iMac (w/64 meg RAM) OS 9 uses like 28meg of RAM,On my B/W G3 (w/128 meg RAM) OS 9 uses 63.3 meg of RAM. Why the hell does it eat all my memory up on my G3?

Do you have Virtual Memory turned off on the B&W G3, or if the iMac has it turned on, that is where you will see the difference. With it on, the OS will use less. I personally leave it on. Both my Pismo, 192 megs ram, and my B&W G3 256 megs ram, have VM on.
