Setup DynDns With Cisco 1841 Router

Is it possible to use the popular DYNDNS.org service with Cisco IOS. I used the SDM but it seems like it is not a compatible service. It does other things and does not update my IP. I'm not sure if I have to use the SDM or the Command Line Interfance to achieve this. May be CISCO IOS not compatible with DynDNS.
