    Apple store, BestBuy, Circuit City, Radio Shack ... just guess that they may have it and OWC also.

    Best Buy definitely carries firewire cables, but they're absurdly expensive there. Check out monoprice:

    http://www.monoprice.com/products/subdepartment.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10301

    They have every combination of 4-pin, 6-pin, 9-pin cables in a variety of lengths.

    Is this for stacking together a couple Cisco switches with the Gigastack Stacking GBIC module?? I'm pretty sure you want a cable with the 6-pin firewire connector on both ends.

    Here are the docs for the Gigastack Stacking GBIC module:

    NOTE: This post elsewhere on the forum:

    Implies that while the connectors are the same as firewire, cisco changed the pinout so you CANNOT use a regular firewire cable!

    The part number for the proper Cisco cable is CAB-GS-1M - OR, you can toss those weird ass stacking GBICs and get some 1000Base-T GBICs
