You can learn how to do this in every conceivable way here: http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/144/how-to-set-up-ssl-on-iis-7/
The certificate setup is the same regardless of which filter you are using (ASp>NET or PHP for example).

the SSL is per domain, THE WHOLE DOMAIN-every page(sales.abc.comp.com, www.abccomp.com,etc)

Ive installed on IIS6..cant be too different...you need to
1 get a SSL from a hosting company like GoDaddy..
2 create a (CSR) certified Sales Reciept on your Web server(IIS)...see:
http://www.geocerts.com/csr/iis_6
3 this geneterates a PGP encription file...a key to be passed back n forth...send this to your SSL provider(GoDaddy)
4 the SSL provider does there thing for a few days..they will send you a confirm email..
5) they send you a file that you need to install on your file direcotry off the web server..usually a .crt extention..

You don't have to worry about that iis had that value by default ...creating the CSR is simply a wizard that you have to click 'next'...that value will come up on one of the windshield wizard panels and you will see the value there by default...you click next ...

You can google 'create CSR ..' and alot of links come up..some have step by step with pics ...

Once you go thru the wizard and create the csr ...it will dump that file to a directory that you choose off the wizard...take that file and upload to your hosting company web site you have an account thru...

give it a go...you can always delete and create another

the goddady link worked in creating a .crt file and p7b file

using iis7 I have created a self signed certificate before going to website editing bindings and using https

but since this is not self signed
there is no ssl certificate from the drop down menu to choose in edit bindings https
