I'd like if someone could tell me where I could find info on the web with all the steps necessary to sign an applet, and what I need to provide to my client in order for him to "trust" my applet. Something that teaches that to me like I'm 5 yeasr old :)

Read also the "Running a Signed Applet" section at Netscape to understand how Communicator deals with signed applets:

Yeap, that was a great help, I just needed to know one more thing.. What do I provide the client so he can trust my applet and how to do it. If you answer me this I'll give the points, even if your answer is "I don't know" because you deserve them for helping me out.

In Communicator, do Communicator|Security Info, click the Java/Javascript link, then the "Help" button. You have a help window that explains you all you need to know. In short, when the user reach the page containing the signed applet, there is a "Java Security Dialog Box" that pops up and help the user to grant/deny the access.
