I propose you get a free SSL cert for as long a trial as you want from http://www.CAcert.org . If the "trial" ends you can still keep using it ;) the CAcert is a damn good service and heartily recommend.

Make sure you don't have any special characters in any of the fields of CSR.

Make sure you don't have any trailing spaces in your CSR.

Here is a link to a free third party certificate (no trial)
https://cert.startcom.org/index.php?app=101&lang=en

and here is a link to an article describing how to set it up on an exchange server (even if you're not doing this, it will be  a good reference)
http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/SSL-Enabling-OWA-2003-Using-Free-3rdParty-Certificate.html

If you really have your mind set on a trial certificate
http://www.verisign.com does them

If you want to create your own CA and generate your own certificate, here is an article describing it:
