VLAN tagging (802.11q) in Linux

Just as a pointer for everyone looking to do the same, here is an article on the Dell PowerEdge mailing list about VLAN tagging on Red Hat Linux. It should also work for Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL).

The main tip was not to setup IP addressing for the native interface (eth2 in the example), but to add it for the sub interfaces eth2.vlan1 and the2.vlan2 instead.
