Hi,

Yes of course you can; create three different Vlans then assign required port numbers for each Vlan.

For example:

Switch> en > conf t > Vlan 2 (to create a Vlan with id 2)
Switch# conf t > interface fa 0/1 > switchport access Vlan 2 (this would set interface 1 to be in Vlan 2)

Follow this example to create your required 3 Vlans and assign ports to each accordingly.

Hope this helps.

Cheers.

Best practice is not to mix DMZ and internal LAN on the same switch.

This isn't "best practice" to not mix DMZ and Internal LAN's on the same switch.  It is your practice.

DMZ and internal VLAN's on the same switch are not a issue as long as the switch is configured correctly to negate against vlan hopping or modifying the configuration of the switch to change the vlans.

If that can be done, you should not hesitate to use a DMZ on the same switch and some applications may necessitate this.

I agreed.  As long as not using layer 3 for those VLANs then I dont see any reason why not using inside and dmz network in the same switch.
