Well not having anykind of remote console is not nice for sysadmining (
I would advise you to change the provider ) although if you have some
kind of remote Linux rescue system you might do something.
I think in theory it would be possible to cross install NetBSD on a ext2
partition, and I have even seen people dd'ing a NetBSD diskimage
from a Linux rescue system to install NetBSD.

wget -O - 'http://host/image.gz' | gzip -c -d > /dev/hda
