configure the asa subinterfaces, just be sure to use the 'vlan vlan_number' command under each subinterface that you configure.

On the switchside, try the following commands:

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport mode trunk

don't forget you still need to create the vlans on the switch also. you can configure each subinterface on the ASA as you would a normal interface, the only difference being the 'vlan vlan_number' command.
