Default Fedora 8 + DNS Questions

Hey Guys,
Firstly I have been using the howto guides since I moved to linux. They are an absolute godsend. i have mainly been using the perfect desktop guides... especially with Fedora.

I am now setting up a some Fedora 8 server. I have been following the perfect server setup. I am however confused on many aspects of DNS.

I want to host DNS on this server. It will also be used as a mail, ftp and web server.

I have questions about the domain side setup and the server side setup...

I have only 1 IP. Do I register that ip with:
- ns1.mydomain.com
- ns2.mydomain.com

Assuming thats correct lets move on...

On the first page of the the:
http://www.howtoforge.com/fedora-8-s...-ftp-ispconfig

you can enter a static IP and primary and secondary DNS server...

So i use the ip 192.168.1.55
my host name is www1.mydomain.com

because this machine is my dns server for primary and secondary dns server do I put 192.168.1.55 for both?

Looking forward to your responses. And I understand I don't know what the hell im talking about for some reason i'm having trouble wrapping my head around DNS.. BUT I am willing to learn and want to learn

Regards,
dac9
