Linksys SRW2008 Configure to use existing Cisco vlans

I bought a LInksys SRW2008 Managed 8 port switch to evaulate as a cheaper desktop solution for a managed switch as opposed to the more expensive Cisco 2960.  I am trying to configure the switch to use the existing vlans my company already has but with no luck.  I've only gotten as far it being a dumb switch where all the ports are using the vlan of the wall jack the switch is plugged into.

I've set up trunking on both ends, but can't figure out what else to do to make it work.  Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't really used the new cisco/linksys small office line, but I have read a bit about them.  One presentation showed the vlans were to be configured via the "VLAN" tab in the web interface.

I was looking for far more detail than that, but I think I have it figured out now.
