dovecot SSL certificate missing

I am running redhat 9.0. I have been using uw-imap for some time now and wanted to try out dovecot. After installing dovecot and trying to start it up I am getting an error
-------------------
Starting IMAP daemon (dovecot): Fatal: Can't use SSL certificate
/usr/share/ssl/certs/dovecot.pem: No such file or directory
-------------------
The dovecot.pem file doesn't exist.
How can I create SSL certificates for dovecot?
I tried dovecot on a fedora machine without any problems at all.

Thanks for any help.

I have not had a chance to try this out. I guess if it doesn't work I could always repost the question.

Thanks again
