The title is pretty much my question. I configured two VLANs on a Cisco Aironet WAP. How should I configure the switchport on the switch on the other end? Do I configure a subinterface on the switchport for the other VLAN?

I beleive you can only have one VLAN ID for each switchport right?

You should configure it as trunk.
If it's a Cisco switch something like

switchport trunk encap dot1q
switchport mode trunk

should work.
Of course as with all Cisco things, these commands might not work on your specific switch depending on your IOS version.

the vlan #s will need to match the vlan #s on the cisco switch...then follow agriesser's notes..

If the switch is from cisco too, you should configure the AP to be in the same vlan domain and it wil get the vlans from your switch automatically.
