MySQL partitioning, my host doesn't support it, what can I do?

Hey Guys,

Trying to get my feet wet with MySQL partitioning but I get the following error when I try to set up the table:

#1289 - The ‘partitioning’ feature is disabled; you need MySQL built with ‘–with-partition’ to have it working”

My site is hosted with Is there anything I can do get this feature enabled? I know it probably means recompiling MySQL with partition enabled, but is there nothing I can do when on a shared host to get this working?

Thanks for any help,
