    Where do I do this?

    1.Update your domain’s name servers to the following: NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

    2.Next to Domains, click Launch.
    3.Select the domain name(s) you want to modify.
    4.From (Nameservers), select Set Nameservers.
    5.Select one of the following:

    But the Nameservers option is grey and I cant click it.

    No you need the domain mapping upgrade. WordPress.com is only free if you use the basic .wordpress.com name. Since you have already brought your domain follow the instructions for mapping an existing domain.

    Sorry, I can’t help there, I use domainmonster. Perhaps someone familiar with godaddy will be able to help you.

    If you don’t get any luck here try godaddy’s forums or start a new thread with a title like “cannot set WordPress Nameservers in Godaddy”!
