No, that particular option is for configuring your domain to use external name servers. This is useful (for example) if you wish to host the domain elsewhere, while leaving the domain registration here at DreamHost.
You can configure things so that your name servers look like ns1.mydomain.com etc. but it isn't as simple as using the 'Set Your Nameservers' function. The thread linked below has more details on the procedure.
