I believe I Found the Solution.

"Fire up MMC, add the Local Computer Certificate store into the console, locate the certificate for the computers DNS name when you first went to install Exchange 2010 Beta/RC, (It will be in the personal store if you are getting this error and matched the thumbprint), move it into the Trusted Root Certification Authorities. Now you can install, enjoy :)."

This worked.  I have passed step 7 and am progressing forward.
