config example/vlan trunking?

I need to configure a 5496 and a 2910 to have the same vlans across both. Essentially, my 54xx is all setup with all the vlans, I just need to add a few 2910 to my net but need the vlans to extend out to those devices.

what would the configuration for each port facing each other look like?

Re: config example/vlan trunking?

example:
5496 port a1 connects to 2910 port 1

5496:
vlan 1
untag a1

vlan 2
tag a1

vlan 3
tag a1

vlan 4
tag a1

2910:
vlan 1
untag 1

vlan 2
tag 1

vlan 3
tag 1

vlan 4
tag 1

switch-to-switch ports requiring vlans to pass between the switches, require the ports to be 'tagged' in the vlans.

end-device ports (like computers/printers) would be 'untagged' in the appropriate vlan.

I forgot to add some info.

HP ProCurve "tagged" = Cisco "trunk port"
HP ProCurve "untagged" = Cisco "access port"
