I'll back up what Tim says about Hetzner with regard to service.
They are excellent, and are very responsive, also, the system
rescue-image functionality and the vnc based install which you can
initiate from a web interface are very handy.
They offer great value for money for their dedicated hosting, and we
here have not had a problem with the servers provided.
