Configuring DNS to Work with my domain

I currently own a domain name in which I have registered with I beleve they currently have PTR & MX record setup to forward all trafic to my external IP address. How do I go about taking full control of the domain so that I do not have to contact them for any changes that needs to be done.

I currently have a FreeBSD box setup with Bind9 configured and forwarding DNS requests to my ISPs DNS servers. I'm assuming I can use the same system with Bind9 to control the domain in which I own.

It's a simple, free dns service for guys like us that don't want to manager our own.
