Setup DNS

I currently have a DNS server running in house. It does not contain any public records. I would like to know how you setup a DNS server in house that would have public records. I currently have to call my ISP for a DNS change. I want to control this myself such as changing MX records and such.

you would setup a server say in your dmz, and allow access to it through your firewall.  You will create your zones and populate with your public ip addresses and such.
then you will need to get with your ISP and they will have make your dns server authoritive for your DNS zone.  Once that occurs you should be good to go, this process can take up to 48 hrs to propogate.  Also recommended that you have two publically available DNS servers on two separate IP addresses for redundancy prefereably one on a different network, so that if that network segment is down then you will not lose public dns to your servers.
