Be /very/ careful looking at dedicated hosting providers - I've seen,
and experienced, several who offer root access, but no compiler is
installed or installable, etc etc.

Media Temple I'm looking at right now - more expensive, but I've never
heard a bad word, and some high profile sites - sent through a request
asking about this... 4 hours ago now - still, midnight local time.

If you don't /really/ need such a provider, check out a2webhosting, who
have mysql 4.1.9 installed, php 4.3/5.0+mysqli, ssh access. I currently
use the reseller packages, but I note they also have dedicated services.
