We have 5 boxes with ev1 (ev1servers.net) and are happy with their 
service.  They give you full control over your server, and support all 
major platforms and hosting control panel software.

The default installs do not come with the latest version of everything, 
but you can install your own packages.  Also, some control panel 
software install their own version of popular software (such as MySQL) 
so if your control panel supports MySQL 4.1 you are good to go.

We choose to manually update PHP and MySQL on our servers, so its not an 
issue for us.

Hope this helps,
