Server 2008 Tomcat SSL issues

I am trying to setup SSL on Tomcat and have run into some issues.  I need to be able to use a .crt file from GoDaddy.

I am able to secure Tomcat SSL with a self-signed cert by using this.

<Connector port="8443" protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true"
               maxThreads="150" scheme="https" secure="true"
               clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" keystoreFile="conf/file.cer" keystorePass="changeit" />


No matter what I try, I cannot get it to work with the .crt file.  I installed all of the root certs etc into the keystore.

I tried using this but no luck.

    <Connector protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol" port="8443" maxThreads="200" scheme="https" secure="true" SSLEnabled="true" keystoreFile="conf/tomcat.keystore" keystorePass="changeit" clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS"/>

the keystore should be in the server.xml, please follow this (at least from paragraph "Prepare the Certificate Keystore").

I've setup the keystore and installed the SSL certificate.  I just need to figure out what goes in the  secure socket section in server.xml.
