Default Hosting my own nameservers: How? Recommended?

I have successfully set up an ISPConfig3 server on Centos 5.3 per the perfect server tutorials, where everything is working fine. I have even installed a second server that will be managed through the first ISPConfig 3 GUI. Now to the questions:
  • Can I use both servers as nameservers (ie ns1.mydomain.com, ns2.mydomain.com)?
  • If yes, do I simply give the nameservers (names and IPs) to the registrar (godaddy?) of mydomain.com?
  • If not, why not?
  • What needs to be in place (configuration wise, etc) in order for this to work? I do have a working DNS.
  • Is it even recommended to host both servers?
  • Can anyone share with the rest of the community what they have done that has worked for them?

Thanks, as always for any input.

Jude

Yes, but you might have to set up glue records.
These tutorials (although for ISPConfig 2) should give you the idea:

Godaddy has a easy interface for creating your glue records...
