I'm not quite sure if I understand... where does the router hook up to...

For example... 1 side of the router in Port 1 (VLAN #1) of the switch and the other side of the router in Port 2 (VLAN #2) of the switch?  Then I can connect any nodes to any other ports that are either VLAN 1 or 2 and they'll be able to communicate thru the router?

yes but As long as uconfigured to use the router address on VLANs as their gateway, the router will happily excahnge packets with the other VLANs -- which it knows about because it has interfaces on those VLANs, too.
