I've hosted (and am hosting) on tektonic.net (whose VPS stuff now seems 
to be done through unixshell.com).  They've been pretty good overall and 
offer a decent selection of distros.  Pricing's not bad either (see 
https://www.unixshell.com/plans.html), though you don't get an SSL cert 
like GoDaddy.

Distros they offer (copied from their site):
# CentOS (RedHat Enterprise rebuild)
# Debian (woody/testing/unstable branches)
# Gentoo
# Fedora Core
# Mandrake
# Mandriva
# Slackware
# Ubuntu
