USB on Beige G3 Problems

I've got a beige g3 with a reflashed pc radeon 7000. It is running 10.3.9 with 512mb of ram, and a 266 mhz overclocked to 300. It's been running very stable up until I put the radeon in. Then it would crash out on me at the apple logo on startup before the spinning thing comes up with the USB card in. When I take the USB card out, it works just fine. I've used this card before in this computer, and it worked just fine. Any suggestions?

Ive also tried the cuda reset and resetting the open firmware, and changing the positions of the 2 cards.

ive herd some issues about usb pci cards and the ati radion 7000 not likeing each other and causing problems. You might want to buy a real Mac edition and see if you have the same problem. how much stuff do you have connected to the usb card. what is the name brand of the card and what chipset it uses.
