Domain on webspace & subdomain elsewhere?

Hi,
I want to continue to host my domain, say mydomain.com, in my Plusnet webspace but want to point subdomain photos.mydomain.com to an external site (fotopic.net) -
can I do this?
In their FAQs they advised adding a CNAME for the domain as follows:
photos IN CNAME virtual.fotopic.net.
I'm not sure if I have to add an A record too, and if so, what IP should be in there.
Or how do I need to configure my DNS records for this setup?
Can you help, please?
Thanks,
Vaughn.

Check the Tutorial in the tutorials and FAQs forum.

Thanks, I have read the section Pointing a 'sub domain' to another domain name in http://portal.plus.net/central/forums/viewtopic.php?t=10154 and so I assume I just need to add:

Left field=photos
Pri=(blank)
Type=CNAME
Right Field=virtual.fotopic.net.

Is that right?
Will mydomain.com still point to html stored under the /htdocs folder?

Sorry if I'm being a little slow on the uptake!

Thanks.
