Nortel Phones and PC share a port on Catalyst 3524XL

I have a customer that would like to connect Nortel Phones to a Cisco 3524XL Switch. The phones will share a port with the PCs. I configured the port for voice vlan 2. How will the Nortel phone know that is on VLAN 2. I assume the only way is to hard code on each phone. Is there another solution?

Unlike the Cisco IP phones, the Nortel phone does not take advantage of the benifits of VLAN trunking. Rather than accessing an auxillary VLAN, the Nortel phone uses DSCP to mark as priority. You might be able to force a specific VLAN by hard coding on every phone but that can be a management nightmare.
