Dynamics 2011 IFD how many sub domains are required? Is a wildcard certifacte essential?

We are trying to get Dynamics 2011 deployed for internal use. Have followed the excellant video here 
We follow that along step by step just fine until he gets to the IFD config wizard. He uses and At that point we deviate as we don't have a wildcard certificate and then things start to go wrong... Also we are using for the main dynamics site, so we are not sure what the dev and auth domains should be.
Specifically, at 22:24 when he goes to htts:// we get this error:
There was a problem accessing the site. Try to browse to the site again.
If the problem persists, contact the administrator of this site and provide the reference number to identify the problem.
Reference number: fe9c8ab0-491c-436c-8271-f8dd7b467254
We also get that error now when we go to https://localservername:444 which worked fine when we checked it at an earlier step.
Most of the examples out there refer to using a wildcard certificate, is this essential? How many sub domains are required and what are they?
Many thanks in advance,

Thanks feridun,

We have one box with everything on it, one organisation currently, will have more as time goes on. How many would that be currently? Could you just gie me a list...

For one box, I think you either need one wildcard certificate or three "single" certificates. One for the ADFS URL, one for the CRM server URL and one for the organization URL.
