Well running your own name server is one way, another might be
to get someone else to host the DNS part. Most ISPs will set up
the DNS for a zone you own for a minimal fee.

Some sites will even host your DNS free of charge - although you
get corresponding guarantees normally.

Your Linux box definitely has a static IP address?
