how do I enable jumbo frames on a HP Procurve 2824 switch?

HP support sucks :)
I hate when you call for support and they send a URL with a product manual! (like that hadn't been done already).

I want to enable Jumbo frames on my storage network. I have the details to enable on our SAN, and ESX hosts, just not the switch (HP Procurve 2824).
If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated.

Syntax: vlan < vid > jumbo
[ no ] vlan < vid > jumbo
Configures the specified VLAN to allow jumbo packets on all
ports on the switch that belong to that VLAN. If the VLAN is
not already configured on the switch, vlan < vid > jumbo also
creates the VLAN. Note that a port belonging to one jumbo
VLAN can receive jumbo packets through any other VLAN
statically configured on the switch, regardless of whether the
other VLAN is enabled for jumbo packets. The [no] form of the
command disables inbound jumbo traffic on all ports in the
specified VLAN that do not also belong to another VLAN that
is enabled for jumbo traffic. In a VLAN context, the command
forms are jumbo and no jumbo. (Default: Jumbos disabled on
the specified VLAN.)
