Can I have two ssl certificated on one machine?

I'm new to the world of ssl and am trying to place my certificate so that Apache  will load it automatically at runtime.

I've created the new certificate and signed it. When I went to copy it to localhost.key though there was already a file there called localhost.key and it prompted me to overwrite. I checked and this file has another key in it, one which I didn't create. Since I'm not sure about this other key, is it possible to keep it and have two keys?

Thanks for any help in understanding this.
