[thelist] dedicated server hosting

Hi folks,

Here is "yet another" solicitation for opinions on hosting providers...  
Do you know of any reliable hosting provider that can do the following?

What I need:

Linux dedicated server, with some choices as to size, bandwidth etc.
MySQL 4.1
PHP 4.3

I've already contacted (by email) rackspace.com, 1and1.com, and 
hostik.com with the request above, and had no response from any of them, 
in 24 hours.  None.  I'm disappointed, and surprised. I thought bad 
customer service happened only after you became a customer.

I know that MySQL 4.1 is only available in late-release distributions 
that apparently aren't favored by hosting providers, but I'd like to 
avoid having to compile MySQL from source, on a remote server (can't 
locate RPMs for Fedora Core 2, which is what 1&1 offer).

Any ideas will be much appreciated... Thanks.
