Home Network Question: Help me choose the right router and network configuration for my needs.

Our Netgear 802.11b router just died, so we're in the market for a new one. However, we have a couple of concerns.
1. We've been talking about moving up to 802.11g, but my partner's G3 iBook won't be able to connect to it. She plans on getting a new computer early next year, but until then, we still need that computer to connect. If we get a "g" router that claims "b" cards can still connect, will that really be the case? Will we need to adjust configuration in some way?
2. We'd like to network our printer and an external hard drive over the router. What's the best way to do this?
