    I see two options for you:
    1) Configure your box without a name service. Then create a reseller account for yourself and set the name servers to use to that of register.com.
    2) More preferable, get another IP address and set up your own two name servers to run on our box. I think you'll find the additional control (I'm a control freak :) ) you gain will make it worhtwhile.

    Good luck Kingx ;)
