vlan dell switch 2848

Please need some help asap. I am not experienced in configuring switches besides enabling spanning tree and disabling ports configuring ip address for management through GUI. I am familiar with the gui for 2848 but my layout is this:
ip phones already configured from phone systems to hp switch to current cisco 8 port POE switch. then i have a cisco firewall with 8 ports filled up for wireless ap and pcs.  I need to configure my new dell 2848 to segregate 24 ports between voice and data. do i simply create the "T" for in/out data for both seperate vlans and create "U" for each port for each VLAN? sorry I sort of understand untagged and Tagged/Trunk for "T" right? :) yup I am a newbie, sort of watched youtubes, but need this configuration up this week. data needs internet and voice needs only access to phone system no firewall. please ask me if i need to provide more information.

I'm no Cisco or dell expert, but if you want to have some ports as phone vlan and some ports as only data vlan this is a generic how to:
Set the phone ports to the phone vlan as U. Set the pvid of those ports to the phone vlan. What this does is allow phone vlan packets out untagged and anything coming in untagged gets assigned the phone vlan. Do the same for the data ports.
All desktop computers like this setup, some phones actually like to tag stuff. If your phones like tagged packets and like to tag packets going out, just use t instead of u.
For your uplink port to the other switch, it should be T for both vlans. That way packets from either vlan going to the other switch are tagged.
