Dumping a v4 database

A remote shared host has what apparently is a version 4 MySQL database that is used by a legacy CMS. I'm attempting to relocate the CMS and need to dump the database. The host provides phpmyadmin but it fails to dump the database. Attempting mysqldump from the shell also fails. The host's support has replied that neither phpmyadmin or mysqldump can export or dump the db due to its ancient version.

I do not know how restrictive the privileges are but I do know the db resides on a host other than the CMS. On the off chance that the privileges have a wildcard I'd like to try to create a dump with some legacy MySQL tool. What tool is recommended?
