3550 Management Port

Please forgive my ignorance, however I've searched past posts, and read the manual, and cannot find an answer.

Is it possible for me to be able to manage the port via telnet/ssh/web without having to dedicate a port for Management.

Currently I have port 48 on switch1 (3550) set with an internal ip address. It has a cross over cable going to switch2 (3COM) with users plugged in. Port 1 is an uplink to (3COM). All users on switch2 can access the switch1 web ui, however if I plug anything into Switch1 it cannot access the web ui/telnet. So what gives?

I'm trying to migrate over 4 3com switches to the two cisco switches, but I need to be able to manage the switches. Can someone give me tips on setting up? Do I really need to loose two ports, one on each switch for management?

You can configure "interface vlan x" and give an IP address which would be your management address. the following page is for XL switches, but it is similar on 3550's which can have multiple VLAN interfaces as it is a layer 3 switch
