Fedora CORE II SSL Installation Question

Phil Welch-2
I've tried getting SSL setup but thusfar to no avail, so I'll have to
humbly admit defeat and seek expert assistance.  

Firstly, I need only real certificates.  These are some of the things
I've tried:

1.) openssl genrsa -des3 -out server.key 1024
2.) openssl req -new -key server.key -out www_xyz_com.csr
3.) sent www.xyz.com.csr to certificate authority
4.) received www.xyz.com.crt back from certificate authority
5.) added
# SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/www_xyz_com.crt
# SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key
# SSLEngine on
to httpd.conf
6.) enabled ssl.conf
Note:  initially commented in httpd.conf but later tried
SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key
as shown.

Results have varied, but none worked.

Rather than try to work this line by line, is there a step by set
narrative available which takes me from a clean /etc/httpd/conf
directory containing only the httpd.conf and magic files, which already
has openssl installed?  I've searhed the Internet and tried every
combination that seemed reasonable, but thusfar without success.
