Need Help Installing SSL Certificate On IIS5.0
I am trying to install an SSL Trial Certificate on an IIS5.0 Server but
i am not able to do this properly. I am running an Windows 2000 Sever on
a fat32 partition, does that prevent me from installing an SSL Certificate.
ANy help would be appriciated.
I also found some material on how to install a SSL Certificate on IIS4.0
they talk about a key manager from the mmc & i am not able to locate that
in WIndows 2000.
Thanking you in advance for your time.

You now have a server certificate installed. You may want to test the Web site to ensure that everything is working correctly. Be sure to use https:// when you test connectivity to the site
Once your certificate is installed, we strongly advise you to make a backup of your certificate with its private key. The instructions to backup your certificate is available on the link : http://search.thawte.com/thawte/solution.jsp?id=vs27853
For a trial certificate you will need to download the trail root certificate, please see following link for more information:
