    All up in your interwebsnet.
    Ok here's what I have.

    - Dreamhost Account with domain name.
    - Router
    - Dynamic IP ISP Account
    - Windows 2003 Server
    - Several PCs To connect to the router

    My goal is to have all the computers on my network resolve to the *.home.domainname.com

    Help me with the logistics. What services would I use? How do I configure the different settings: DNS, DHCP? How do I need the router configured to make sure reverse lookup works correctly?

    I don't even undestand what your asking, and it's proabably because you don't know what your talking about.

    If you have a dreamhost account with a domain name, then why are you bothering with any kind of Server in your home network?

    By having a dreamhost account you get an FTP and Web server.

    use dreamhost for your DNS and you can manually update your host records. Other than that, you could pay for a dynamic dns service.
