Thank you Falko and veuster.
I got it figured out and working on Friday night. Got rid of the set up that was trying to create and use my own name servers. I switched the name servers back to those of Federal Domain, switched the "A" record to point to my IP Address and everything works fine.
Now that I have two sites up and running, the addition of any others will be easy to set up. Just mirror what I have with the new domains.
The integration between the webserver, ftp server, and email server in ISPConfig is great.
Thank you for your help
