    Thanks, But when I paste the CSR into the appropriate form at geotrust.com, I get the following error :
    > "Please enter a valid CSR
    > Bad extension(s) found in CSR: Check challenge passphrase is
    > alphanumeric, and no SeverGatedCrypto extension exists. " Please advise.

    really tough to find
    Hmm...Some problem with the CSR, try regenerating it and using it again.

    Save the private key, which is requred again later at the timeof installing the real SSL on the server..
