New WHM Server - Possible Problem

Hi - we just leased a new WHM server from a larger server provider. I'm going through the WHM setup manual line-by-line and it seems I've found an issue already. The server provider set the hostname and nameservers to what we are going to use for the domain name, but I just read here at step 8:

That it's not the way it's supposed to be setup. I emailed the server support people and they said that is the way they always set up servers and they've never had any issues. I'm concerned about going forward with the setup without having more information.

Before my brain starts to hurt, is there a good step-by-step setup example out on the web anywhere that shows how WHM needs to be setup for a new server with generic or real examples?
