I currently have a server powered by Ubuntu 10.10 at my ISP. It is a custom RAID5 installation. I want to use RAID10, after that I want to re-install everything. I only have SSH access to to the machine. I want to re-install Ubuntu. How can I do this on my own?

I've already done something similar with CentOS. I had VNC access to the graphic installer. It was great.

What can I do this time?

You can't. As far as I know.
You need "real" remote access to your server. By that I mean KVM over IP for example.
Something that would make you access the server like you would physically.
