Can't connect to database in install

I'm a total newbie and am hoping someone can help me!


I'm attempting to install osCommerce 2.2a and can't get past the database server step. I keep getting the error "Unknown MySQL server host 'WIC009Q.server-sql.com/SQL4,4659' (11004)" whenever I enter in the details that my host gave me.


I am able to connect to my database on my host using the SQL management tools using the same credentials that I've tried in the install process.


The details I'm entering that my host gave me are:

Server: WIC009Q.server-sql.com\SQL4,4659

Username: **********

Password: **********

Database name: vs224140_1


Thanks for any help you can give!

The above doesn't look like a set of MySQL connection details... they look more like SQL Server which isn't officially supported in osCommerce at this time
