4/1-4/8 means slot 4 port 1 through slot 4 port 8.
Hi there,
What you need to do is setup a port on the previous switch as a trunk port and trunk the appropriate VLANs over that port using 802.1q encapsulation - THEN setup trunking on the new switch the same exact way you have the other one setup. Now what you need to do is define the VLANs on the new switch to match the ones you have on the other switch and set the other ports on the new switch into access mode and then select the VLAN you want the port to access.
That should be about it.
Cheers! Let me know if you have any questions.

I have only played with Nortel before... I'm a Cisco guy. I can tell you though that Nortel commands are almost just like Cisco. If you know Cisco, try running the same commands you would on a Cisco device.
Also, try this documentation and see if that helps - it's info on setting up VLANs and trunking on the 8600 switches.
To add, for example, the 8608GTE in Slot 3 to VLAN 1 use the CLI command syntax:
config vlan 1 ports add 3/1-3/8

To save the current config to the default config file use:
save config

To back up the current config to a different file before making changes use:
save config file config1.cfg

Did it tested 100% so I will give you 250 points only half is done from my question

Use the copy command:

copy /flash/config.cfg

Replace the ip address in the example above with the IP address of your TFTP server.
