Good question.  I'm going to answer your question with facts about how multiple IP's work and let you decide how you're going to proceed. Multiple IP's can be confusing when natting them to the same LAN.  I like to keep it simple.  A modem likes to see separate devices attached to it for each public IP address.  But a router can have multiple IP addresses attached to one port (but is not usually not configured that way), and different servers can have different outside IP addresses routed to it while in the same LAN. Your servers CAN share the same outside address and be on different domains, but it's simpler to assign one domain one IP address. Bottom line you can do either.  As far as DNS, Your domain admin (godaddy or whatever) will have tools to point your domain directly to the IP address and give you complete freedom to use any DNS hosting you choose. You don't need to use the ISP's reverse DNS records (fqdn as given by the ISP).
I hope that answers your question.

I have a 2wire 2701-HG-D modem. I want to run 5 servers on the 5 staic ip addresses that have been assigned to my account. Do I point my dns records at the gateway address of the router and then froward each application as nessecary, or do I need to point dns records at each static ip address?

Set up your modem per Qwest instructions for block of 5. If Qwest doesn't support that modem, you're on your own.  Generally here's the concept: Qwest modems have what's called a VIP mode. this means you can have your private LAN with internal DHCP on a 192.168.0.X network. At the same time, any device you configure with one of the outside static addresses on the same physical wire as your LAN will automatically work for that address. Your GW will be the default modem gateway (outside) as assigned by qwest, and your subnet mask will be 255.255.255.248. The modem keeps anyone from the outside from seeing any 192.168 addresses in your LAN unless you port forward a port, in which case the outside user would use your gateway address to access that server. Let me know if this is confusing. I've not heard of Qwest using 2-wire, but I definately know how to configure their motorola or actiontech's.

Good answer. See if you know this one. I want to run a private lan for the office with an exchange server for the office for the same domain, and a web server with a static ip address for a different domain. Should I point the forward dns records to the gateway address and forward the ports to the static ip addresses, or do i need to point the dns records directly to each staic ip address? Also, do I need to use the reverse dns records from my ISP?
