I have set up and donated an MX record without problem, but I also have an A record for the same sub-domain, with the IP of my server specified. I created it thinking I would need it for the subdomain to be valid. Do I actually need this A record or can I delete it? This is on a Cobalt RaQ550.

Technically you do not need an A record for your MX record. However, some GUI-based DNS editors require you to have one. If you are editing your DNS entries manually, or if your GUI editor allows you do create an MX without an A or to delete the A after the MX has been created, you're welcome to go ahead and delete it.
