Have you set the named pointers at NetFirms for the new domain name yet? That has to propogate through for servers to find it. May take up to 48 hours. Your hosting service should have had that done already for you, but you can check via your Control Panel. If you can access your site normally at NetFirms server, then you can set up redirect to the dedicated server. Might help...
