Question about firewire/hub connections

Is there such a thing as a hub that will accept USB 2.0 and Firewire, which I can connect to my computer using just Firewire?

I got my laptop just before USB 2.0 came out, so sadly I'm stuck with 1.1. The thing is, I do have a FireWire port, which I currently use with a hard drive. I'm looking for a USB 2.0/FW hub that doesn't need to be connected via USB 2.0... in other words, something that kind of converts USB 2.0 to FW. Is this possible?
seems to be the idea, but it appears I have to connect it via USB 2.0 to use the USB ports:
Anyone help? I don't think I can stand to download pictures off my new S500 at this horrendous rate any longer.
