802.1p "tagging" in os x

Is there a way for OS X or the NIC on OS x to tag a QoS priority on the outgoing traffic?  I want AFP to have a high QoS on the network and since my switches do not support protocol based QoS, just QoS priority, I am wondering if there is a way for OS X to tag its traffic as such

Here is a pretty good article http://www.macgeekery.com/hacks/software/traffic_shaping_in_mac_os_x
I'm not sure if this method is valid in Snow Leopard but it probably is.

802.1p is VLAN Tag..! You can add VLANS via the Netvork preferencepane.
Simply use the * (gear) under the list, and select Manage VLANS.. the rest should be easy!

But! VLANs does not help with priority, unless your switch can only prioritize one VLAN over another.

But if you tell us a bit more about your setup, like network speed, server version etc. we might be able to help better..!
