Installing a self signed SSL certificate IIS7 ISA 2006

I'm trying to run through a few step by step instructions I found and have hit a snag.
I created a self signed ssl cert from iis 7.0, I exported it to my ISA 2006 server, I installed it in trusted root CA. I go to the ISA 2006 webpublishing rule, select bridging and select redirect requests to ssl port 443 and browse for the cert but get the message there are no valid certificates. I still get prmpted with certificate error. I assume it is an issue with self signing a cert.

Please advise

    Ok... Done a little more work. Downloaded the Selfssl.exe thingo with the IIS6.0 Resource Kit, created a cert with the correct machine name not FQDN. SSL work well on the site when accessing via https://servername/application_name. Now I am trying to bridge SSL 443 traffic to the webserver, however when I go to select the certificate there is still no valid certificate, I have installed the new cert in the trusted root CA but it is still not available.

    Please advise
