Registering nameservers for linux server

We are trying to setup a Linux server on our own broadband connection with static IP.
I'm not clear how nameservers are allocated/setup.

If we have a domain name registered with a registrar which we want to use as the nameserver (e.g rictdns.co.uk)

1. what settings are required for that domain - what do we have to do to make that domain a nameserver so that we can configure other domains as virtual sites with the nameserver ns1.rictdns.co.uk

2. Does the domain used as a nameserver have to be somehow entered as part of the installation of the Linux server? (we are looking to install RedHat Core Fedora 4)

In the past we have simply supplied a hosting company with a domain name we wanted to use as a nameserver and they have configured it for us, all we have had to do is configure the virtual site domains with the nameserver name. Now we want o try it ourselves.
