This is using IBM chassis E, with blades HS22 and HS12. I'm using BNT L2/3 6-port switch module. Now, few blades, blade 1 and blade 2 are DMZ servers, and the rest is office networks. What should I do in order for such a few segments? create vlan? how about external port assignment?

You should partition the switch, it is not Cisco, and VLAN means tagging on a wire.

Last time I partitioned Bay Networks switch it needed the initialization via Serial port directly attached to the switch.
Probably blade rack does assign management address to a switch where you can connect with telnet and/or SSH

Management ip address can be assigned thru AMM. After telnetting to the switch, how should I "partition the switch?

Use web-based instead. Eventually, change the vlan memberships to respective INT and EXT ports solve the problem for the day.
