Default ubuntu server setup

hello. im trying to setup an ubuntu server just to play around with. I am following the directions from here :

http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_ubuntu_6.06_p5

I am on page 5 step 11 at the part:

Afterwards we create the certificates for TLS:

mkdir /etc/postfix/ssl
cd /etc/postfix/ssl/
openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
chmod 600 smtpd.key
openssl req -new -key smtpd.key -out smtpd.csr
openssl x509 -req -days 3650 -in smtpd.csr -signkey smtpd.key -out smtpd.crt
openssl rsa -in smtpd.key -out smtpd.key.unencrypted
mv -f smtpd.key.unencrypted smtpd.key
openssl req -new -x509 -extensions v3_ca -keyout cakey.pem -out cacert.pem -days 3650

at the line: openssl x509 -req -days 3650 -in smtpd.csr -signkey smtpd.key -out smtpd.crt

i get the following error:
smtpd.csr: No such file or directory

does anyone have any insights on this error and how to resolve it?
Thanks Rich

Did you get any error messages in the previous steps?

I suggest that you run all the TLS commands again, one at a time.
