It is pretty common for a USB device to hinder startup for no apparent reason. It is usually the device misbehaving. There are 2 possible workarounds to this issue. First obviously would be to disconnect the device when you start your Mac, then connect it after it has booted. The second workaround is to connect the device (floppy) to a powered USB hub, but this doesn't work in every case so I wouldn't run out and buy one if you don't need one.

Sainavya,

Did you plug the USB floppy drive to the USB port behind your G3, or USB port on your Macintosh Keyboard?

Try to plug the USB floopy drive to the USB port that attached on the machine, not the one on the keyboard.
If you did and it didn't work, try switcing the USB port with the one that was being used by the keyboard.

Good luck.
