If you can get one, see if this one boots into Target mode...
That should make ypur iMac look like a big expensive Firewire drive, and we can possibly fix it, clone it, or at least copy some files folders off it.
Another possibilty is to Install OSX on the 2 GB drive, boot from that external drive, then try Migration assistant to geet your data off the Internal drive.
If you want to repair the HD, your best bet is likely DiskWarrior.
BTW, you might enjoy these DiskWarrior review/recommendations...
