I am new to configuring 3COM (or any) switches and have recently acquired a Switch 4500.  I have access to documentation but cannot seem to find what I need since it all seems a little too advanced for me at the moment.  

Here is my setup:

3COM Switch 4500
26 Port POE Switch
192.168.1.254 255.255.255.0 assigned to the device
Everything else is default.

I need the commands (cli or gui) to accomplish the following tasks please:

1) Create 2 VLANs (VLAN1 = Ports 1-6 / VLAN2 = Ports 7-12)
2) Assign VLAN1 192.168.1.X subnet
3) Assign VLAN 2 192.168.10.X subnet
4) Allow traffic to pass between the two VLANs
5) Set up a DHCP Relay so that VLAN2 gets IP addresses from DHCP server on VLAN1 (server = 192.168.1.5 set up to hand out 1.X and 10.x)

Creating vlans is as simple as typing "vlan 1" and "vlan 2". Their ip address is assignes to the vlan interface. After you do this, test that there is traffic going between vlans by setting two computers with static ip addresses and their default gateway being the 4500. If that works, then move to setup dhcp relay.

I attached some of the instructions. You'll need to repeat some commands for every port to add them to the vlan.

Remember to save after everything is working or a reset will erase the changes.
