The following contains configuration notes for newer catalyst switches and switch modules.

This command takes you to the VLAN configuration. Now, you can type:
vlan 100 name dmz state active
Repeat this line for each VLAN you wish to create.

Back on an enable prompt,
to enter configuration mode, and enter
interface fastethernet 1/1
to go to FE1/1, then enter
switchport access vlan 100
to put that port into VLAN 100. You can now configure the VLAN interface
with an ip address or other ethernet interface commands as desired.
