Can you narrow this down  google returns *402,000* for *VLAN knowledge 

Todd I am not lazy and I surely do not wish to be rude while asking for 
help but trully I am old man I don't want to learn a lot of stuff that I 
don't need to know I just want to get this set up and running I have 
read most of the Proxmox site watched several of the videos. If you are 
willing please answer the 4 questions I asked or if those are improper 
questions please tell me what to ask.
thanks herb
