Certificate problem

Certificate problem

We're currently having problems on one of our oldest server environments. I'm a system administrator, and they asked me to create a new certificate for the silverstream server.

But, I doesn't seem to work for me...

I created a Key request on the silverstream server.
But, I do not know how to get it signed by a Windows 2000 Certificate authority. I did already a lot of things in the CA, but I always get the error message: "Failed to decode certificate. The most likely  reason is that the certificate has not been signed by an authenticating authority."

Does any one has got the same and/or knows a solution...
Thanks in advance,

Jonas from Belgium
