Are all the domains registered with the same registrar?
If so, I assume you are entering the DNS details correctly, as the other 7 domains went smoothly.
The only thing I can think of is perhaps there was some kind of network 'glitch' between your registrar and the DreamHost DNS servers at the time, causing the errors. Have you tried again since?
