Uh, maybe I didn't get enough sleep, but I can't quite reconcile these two statements.
Are you saying that support said that if you register a domain at dreamhost, that you can use a custom nameserver?
I'm not quite sure what situation you're describing where you wouldn't be able to run a custom nameserver. That is, if you don't register your domain at DreamHost and you don't want to use their nameserver, then how are they involved?
