Apple’s Tech Info Library article #58329 (“PowerBook G3 Series (Bronze Keyboard): Battery and Media Bay Compatibility”) clarifies some questions about Lombard’s expansion bay devices.

Lombard has two expansion bays similar to earlier PowerBook G3 Series computers. However, the left bay supports battery only, while the right bay supports a battery or media bay device like a CD-ROM drive, or Zip drive. This is a setback for users of expansion bay hard drives, for instance, because you cannot run a CD-ROM and an expansion bay hard drive simultaneously.

The battery from the earlier PowerBook G3 Series is not compatible with the PowerBook G3 Series (Bronze keyboard) because it is too tall. Likewise, media bay devices are not compatible.
