Thanks for all of your responses  :)

Unfortunately, I could not telnet into the server, nor could I do the
mysql_connect command to get into the old server.

I ended up calling the hosting company today to find out if they
would be willing to create a dump for me, since they had been
unresponsive to my e-mails, and they did.  So I'm happy with that  :)
 Plug  :)
