I use a number of D-Link DES-3500 series switches and a number of VLANs.

First, I suppose you would make sure your m0n0 hardware supports the VLANs - 
see the FAQ.  In the GUI go to the Interface Assignments page and click the 
VLANs tab.  Click the + sign to add a VLAN, choose the host interface, VID, 
name, and save.  Click the Assignments tab and the + sign to add an 
interface - your new VLAN should be automatically entered in the new field. 
The save again.  This new VLAN interface will not be operational until you 
reboot, even though you can see it and configure it.  Once you reboot you 
can use the new VLAN.  You will have to make sure the switch interface 
plugged into m0n0's host interface is configured for tagged packets on that 
VID for both ingress and egress.

Hope this helps.
