This may not be an answer you want to hear, but there is a good book
called the "Linux Security Cookbook". It has all the appropriate steps
in there. I believe it's offered as part of the O'Reilly Safari
bookshelf, so you can examine the contents of the book online free for 14
days (you have to sign up though). Or, it may already be present at your
local library or work place.

You might want to check the OpenSSL RPM that came with your distribution.
There is usually a CA.pl or CA.sh that walks you through the steps of
creating a CA. It might even help you self-sign a certificate... it's
been a while since I've used it.
