USB ports on the system fried, can't afford a new MB so we need a USB hub that plugs into a firewire port.

The two aren't compatible, but there are always USB expansion cards.

I could swear I've seen 'em before, hmm. Guess I was tripping, lol.

Yeah that's fine, I don't care if it has Firewire as long as it has USB too. I figured they wouldn't exist USB ONLY anyway.

What is the P/N?

Those flat panel iMacs aren't that old. If you are the original buyer, you might still be covered by the warranty.
