Configure trunk ( dot1q)between Linxux server and a cisco 6500

Want to know the proper way to configure a trunk on a cisco cat os switch... I'm ruunning a Linux server with the monitoring utility Nagios and I need it to access all my VLANS.

Ex:

Running

On my Linux Server 2 network Interfaces on 10.30.32.11 and 10.30.33.11

My switch has vlans 31,32,33,34,44,54,64

Say the the linux server plugs into 6/20 6/21

Do I first assign each port to a vlan ?

And then do

Set trunk 6/20 on dot1q 31-64

Set trunk 6/21 on dot1q 31-64

Does the NIC on the server support trunking? You do not need to assign the ports to every VLAN but just one which will be your Native VLAN(Vlan 1 by default).
