basically what is going on is at a satellite office we are deploying a hosted voip solution with cisco ip phones.  At that office we have a cisco 3560 switch and cisco ip phones, 7945 i believe.  We are also using M5 as a hosted voip solution.  What I want to know is if we can use the data vlan/ voice vlan setup per switchport so the computers can be connected directly to the phones.

It would be dependent on how the VOIP system and netowrk are set up.  But generally, yes PC's can daisy chain off of IP phones and share a single port.

Do you know if the PC's and phones will be on seperate VLAN's?

i know they can daisy chain off of it, thats not what I was asking.  I want to configure a voice to be on a separate vlan from the data, but since that we are going with a hosted voip solution, is that going to be possible to have a voice vlan and a data vlan to have the computer daisy chain off of the phone

Does the switch that the ip phones and PC's connect to support access and voice VLAN's?

yes it does

Then you should be able to have the PC and IP phones daisy chained and on different VLAN's.  Just let the vendor that is providing the hosted solution know what the VLAN's and IP ranges on your netowrk are.
