VLan Routing on Dell PowerConnect 6224 switch

I have a Dell Powerconnect 6224.  I'm having trouble being able to route between vlans.  These are the instructions from Dell.  Seems pretty simple:

Using the Web Interface to Configure VLAN Routing Use the following screens to perform the same configuration using the Web Interface:
• Switching > VLAN > VLAN Membership. To create the VLANs and specify port participation.
• Switching > VLAN > Port Settings. To set the PVID and VLAN type.
• Routing > VLAN Routing > Configuration. To enable routing on Vlans.
• Routing > IP > Configuration. To enable routing for the switch.
• Routing > IP > Interface Configuration. To configure VLAN IP addresses and subnet masks.

So i've create vlan 2 and vlan 3 and selected port 2 and port 3 respectively as untagged.  
In port settings i've made the ports members of the respective PVID and left the Port VLan Mode as "Access."  
I believe i've followed the rest of the steps, but the menus don't exactly match up with their instructions.  

Routing Mode is enabled under Routing - Configuration.
Under Routing - IP - Interface Configuration, I have given each VLan an interface ip like 192.168.65.1 / 255.255.255.0 and enabled Routing Mode.

Shouldn't this be all I need to do, for computers plugged into the vlan ports to be able to ping each other, and the other vlan interface as well?  

Do I need to create routes on the switch?  What should the IP configuration be on these computers on the VLans?  Do I specify the switch as the gateway?

Thanks for any help.

Also, I have bound Subnets to my VLans.

Vlan2 = 192.168.65.1  \  255.255.255.240  
VLan3 = 192.168.66.1  \  255.255.255.240

I think this might have gotten it working.  Before I was entering:

192.168.65.0  \  255.255.255.0
192.168.66.0  \  255.255.255.0

Guess it didn't like that.  I am now able to ping from computer 192.168.65.2 to 192.168.66.2.  I can't ping the other interfaces though.  Is that normal?  

Example:  computer 192.168.65.2 cant ping vlan interface 192.168.66.1.  

thanks!  Is there anything else I might be missing?  Or am I good to go?

Yes your default gateway on the PCs should be 65.1 and 66.1 respectively.
Using the 24 bit mask as you described above should have worked as well.

Also, for any noobs like me.  Dell doesn't allow you to route on the management vlan.  Usually vlan1 unless you change it.  If you want to route, create two extra vlans and either get rid of the vlan1 or just leave it 1 port.  Then set interface IPs for your two new vlans so you can manage the switch from them.  Then bind a subnet to those vlans and enable routing.
