I have a two year old 21" iMac with Firewire but I do not think it has a Thunderbolt. Can I use this LaCie external hard drive?

No. The LaCie Thunderbolt drive can only be connected to a computer that provides a Thunderbolt port.
FireWire equipped Macs can connect to a FireWire drive, or if you use the also present USB2 ports you can connect to a USB drive. Some drives have both USB and FireWire ports.

No, sorry. That's the one downside to this drive. You need a thunderbolt port.
