Subdomain to point to IP address

here is another that I submitted a support ticket for. I think that the community is faster at helping than the tech support,so here ya go…

I want point a subdomain of my site to an IP address where I host my community forums. Can anyone dummy-proof the process? I had read in a previous post that the techs had to set something up, but it seems that I could be waiting a long time for them to do anything like that.

Depending on what level of account you have at Dreamhost, you might be able to set up remote DNS entries using the control panel. (I think this feature is unavailable at the cheapest account level.)
