    If you want to run your own nameserver, have a look here:

    http://www.howtoforge.com/ispconfig_dns_godaddy

    The procedure is similar for all registries.

    If you just want to have one or a few domains, you should consider to use the nameservers from namecheap (if they provide dns service) instead of running your own nameserver. DNS can be a bit troblesome for beginners.

    I would just point your domain you have registered with namecheap to your servers ip
