It's not too clear from your description but I think that you mean there is a firewire (ieee 1394) port on your PC case with an internal lead for connecting to a header on the motherboard. If this is correct then do NOT under any circumstance connect this to a USB header. They are completely different things and are wired differently so connecting to an incorrect header such as USB could result in burning something out. If you don't have a firewire header on your motherboard then just ignore it.

You must NEVER link IEEE 1394 and USB together. It's not called Firewire for nothing.

NO. If your motherboard does not have a firewire connection, then buy a cheap PCI firewire card.
