I have a 2950 switch with 2 vlans configured vlan 1(default) and Vlan 49 I have placed ports 18,19 and 20 in vlan 49. The hosts connected to these ports need to be able to access the dfg which is in vlan1. Is there a way to sucessfully do this without placing one of the routers interface in vlan 49 ? Is there a way to route from vlan 49 to vlan 1 accessing the dfg. I have been told I can do this using trunks ?
You cannot do this till the time you have a layer 3 device like router or layer 3 switch and you configure intervlan routing.
What you want is to have router between your 2 vlans for which intervlan routing is to be configured.
Trunk is used to pass the information of more than 1 vlan from a single link and then you connect your router to trunk interface and configure your router for inter vlan routing.
HOWEVER there is one way which works sometime and soemtimes does not so you cvan try and if you are luck it may work.
WHAT you can do is configure one more port for vlan 49 and then connect a single cross over cable from that port to any free port which is in vlan 1 and then host in vlan 1 may start talking to host in vlan 49 but that now always work so you may try. This is known as vlan leackage which works sometime and is a flaw in technology.
Make sure you configure ports as
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan
because bydefault 2950 ports are in dynamic desirable mode and will try to form a trunk.

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
