I became the tech guy for the group and they want me to fix the website. I am looking at the settings and have found out that our DNS is going through another group called 1&1. No one in the group knows anything about this and therefor I can not log into our old group profile. Is there any way to link the 1&1 DNS to my GoDaddy domain without logging into the old DNS site?
Sure, you can do this for the DNS itself (you may find a need to manipulate other zone file records). For this reason, many people choose to register and host together (one number to call). I know this is not a near-term solution in your case. Anyway, here's how to point a domain with us to an account hosted with others:

I just hosted a domain with godaddy yesterday and today I create a new subdomain and uploaded my files as well but I am getting error when I am running my domain and subdomain. What to do with DNS settings.
The error is
This site can't be reached
Server's DNS address could not be found
Please help me.
Ok WCPD I see your like me jaja we team up and then end with task that might overwhelm you with your other tasks but the reason is to get hands on experience versus documented experience; the interested thing is i found this while learning and reading so forwarding methods and your situation about settings from an old DNS server intrigued me and I'm guessing held routing information you set. If you haven't done yet or updated this post this is what my limited knowledge suggest. Do you have the IP of the old DNS? Did you keep the hosting with them? if you do have the information for the old go ahead and ADD the 1&1 servers within the GODADDY nameservers list.
Godaddy has some help files about changing nameservers that I think might search the help section in the mean time try this possibility:
1)GO TO DNS Management page, under Nameservers, click Change.
Under Choose your new nameserver type, select Custom. Also keep this in mind; you might be able to set your A record to your old 1&1 DNS. Im just giving you ideas that might give you the solution your looking for.
2) For your domain or subdomain to forward, its A record must be pointed to GODDAY NAMESERVER 126.96.36.199
