This is all a bit of out date now
To use Tardis' vlan switch, you must "telnet 192.168.1.2" from davison (the router) and login with the username 'manager'.
You probably won't need the switch for anything other than adding and removing machines from vlans, so...

brings you to the vlan menu. From here things are pretty obvious, 'sum all' lists descriptions of our current vlans, 'det ' then details which physical ports on the switch are enabled for that vlanID.
Other useful stuff on the switch includes various stat functions under 'ethernet' in the main menu, and 'password' and 'reset' under 'system' in the main menu.
