SSL on the Intranet

I've created an application on a webserver on our intranet. The application has an authentication form wherein in takes a user-name and password, connects to database, verifies that they match and then gives access to the other forms.

To secure this I wanted to use HTTPS.

The problem is that when I use the Internet Services Manager in Win2000 it creates a request for a certificate to be sent to some certificate authority on the net.

CAn I get some sample certificate or something just for our intranet?

Thanks,
