Configuring VLANs and trunking ports (not vlan routing) on Linksys SGE2000p switches

Hi,
Currently we have two Linksys SGE2000P switches.  They're just running layer 2 - no routing or VLANs set up on either of them.  They're connected to each other via fiber GBIC on port 24 of each switch.

I need to route a certain port on the one switch to a port on the other switch (basically a dedicated internet connection that's going to serve a single computer).  

To my knowledge, I wouldn't need to set any routing up, since the VLANs don't need to (and shouldn't) talk to each other, however, the VLANs (the existing VLAN as well as the new VLAN i'm setting up) would need to go over the fiber connection on port 24.

Anyone have any insight on how to set this up?

Page 112 talks extensively about Vlan Management and setup.

Basically, you want to create a new Vlan ID, we will call it 3, on both switches.  Check port 24 and make sure it is set to vlan mode Trunking.  If it's not it needs to be.  Once it is set to Trunking you can add Vlan 3 as tagged to port 24 on both switches.

On both switches locate the ports you want on this new vlan 3 and set them to untagged vlan 3.  The ports you connect the computer and internet connection should be set to Access.

So you will end up with Port 24 both switches set to trunking mode with vlan 1 untagged (is by default) and vlan 3 tagged.

Also both switches will have at least on port other than 24 set to vlan 3 untagged in Access mode.

Thanks - one one switch, the interface looks like the manual describes, but on the other one (although it's the same model #, the SGE2000P) it's a much 'newer' interface.
The issues i'm having, is that the newer interface switch doesn't show ports 13 and 24 (the two GBIC ports) in the ''vlan membership" or "vlan ports" section...it's like it just skips over them.

What version software are the two switches running?
