You have to use your account control panel at GoD*ddy to change the nameservers for your domain from GoDaddy’s to those for DreamHost.

Change the nameservers for your registration to point to DreamHost’s using:

ns1.dreamhost.com
ns2.dreamhost.com
ns3.dreamhost.com

This will not effect your registration at all, but will cause your DreamHost site to be displayed when some one visits it in a browser using your domain name (once DNS is updated after you have changed it, which can take from a few minutes up to 72 hours or so).
