VLANs are configured globally and then within the VLAN configuration, you either tag (think trunk) the interface "tag e 1/0/10" or untag (think access) the interface "untag e 1/0/10". You can also place a port in "dual-mode N" where N is the VLAN ID. Dual mode ports place all untagged traffic into the VLAN specified in the command. Also, only "tagged" ports (again, think trunk) can be put in dual-mode. So look at dual-mode as changing the native VLAN.

Im still a little blurry on the whole setting up voice and data VLANs on foundry, is so easy in cisco. So would I untag the port in both VLANs, that set that port up for dual-mode?

Under the interface you're connecting to a phone, do you have a voice-vlan option? This is what you would use specifically for voice VLANs. I have seen others use the dual-mode where the "dual-mode N" command is used where N is the data VLAN and you tag the voice vlan ID.
