I'm on RCN cablemodem. To get my domain working, I use the following:

* as my DNS provider. In addition, they also act 
  as my secondary mx record. Total cost for DNS is free. Cost for the mail 
  backup service is $10/year.

* ddclient to update zoneedit.

* dhcpcd. (Do *not* use pump. Use rpm -e pump)

* And the purcahse of the domain from godaddy was only 9/year.
