% Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I could run a periodic mysql dump

Do you want it dumped on that machine or across to another machine? Is
there a web server on that machine?
You've gotten a number of answers that will dump the database across the
network. If you want it locally and have a web server, write a little
php or perl script which will do the dump and then hit that page from any
other machine that has cron or task scheduler or whatnot.
Meanwhile, start shopping around for other hosts that let you use cron :-)
% Any help is appreciated.
