Basically i would just like to ssl one of our intranet websites.

What is Certificate Server 5.2? Is this a third party application?

What you basically need to do is to open IIS Management console and right click the website where you want the certificate installed. Go to the security tab and in the lower section click on button to request a certificate. If you can reach the CA from windows iis management you can choose to create the request and send it to a online CA. That would be the case with the Windows 2003 built-in CA. If not you need to save the request to send it to a CA later on. Click through the windows and type in the requested information. If you opted to send the request to a online CA the certificate will be installed automatically after being issued and you can use https immediately.
