You'll have to use dot1q trunking on the 3550 and not exactly positive about the powerconnects, but I think they're basically the same switches that you see in Foundry's edgeiron series...so, there should be some construct to allow you to 'tag' the vlans to the 'trunk' interface with the vlans you want to carry across the wire..

Sorry to be so vague, but what works relatively effortlessly on Cisco can be a chore on other platforms.

Well, it will have to be 802.1q for the Cisco and this should be a good place to start for the dell side:

and more specifically:

hope this helps.
