According to the knowledgebase article DSnake uses Ethernet OSI layer 2, same as TCP/IP – it’s only at layer 3 the two diverge.
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OSI_model for more on OSI layers).
A tagged VLan is a way of running multiple virtual networks across the same physical cables/switches as if they were completely independent.
So assuming a switch that supports tagged VLans on each end of the long Ethernet cable that runs from the front to back of the room ports 1 & 2 on each switch can be set to be completely independent networks – as if there were actually 2 wires running down the room.

It’s essentially multiplexing a number of Ethernet connections…
