    My iMacs USB ports seem to be going crazy eg. every few seconds the keyboard CAPS light will light up and everything will stop. Also the mouse only works intermittantly on different ports. Doing fsck -y brought up and "Invailid Sibling Link" then stopped so I guess something is seriously wrong. Its a graphite 400Mhz iMac. Please HELP!!!!

    I'm not terriblely familiar with OS X, but in OS 9, when an invalid sibling link is reported, it means the directory is corrupt, which can be fixed by reformating or suing a third party disk utility (preferably diskwarrior). I've never heard of that problem affecting USb ports like that, though.
