If you don't fancy doing that, you could use a hosted DNS service like 
DynDNS (http://www.dyndns.com/services/dns/custom/) which is relatively 
cheap and rock solid in my experience.

Or you could move the domain to a registrar that has an easy to use DNS 
manager. Most of them do, I use Daily.co.uk and theirs is perfectly usable.
