Default Cannot install a CA certificate


CAn someone help me on how to install a certificate from certiifcate provider , first time setting up. I followed the instructions from the godaddy site created csr file , copied the .csr data to the godaddy site, they created my certiifcate but I am unable to install . says the key file does not match or error cannot find key file. 6 hours checking settings re downloading same error. Works fine with self signed certificate . Not sure if I.m using the right key file to generate the csr file or where I should be looking for this . Is it feasible to create a whole new key file and start from scratch? How can I create a server key file? Very lost at this point. below are the instructs they reference .

Using suse 11.2 , apache2 , mod_ssl, openssl

:/usr/bin # openssl genrsa -des3 -out /etc/ssl/servercerts/serverkey.pem 2048
Generating RSA private key, 2048 bit long modulus
e is 65537 (0x10001)
Enter pass phrase for /etc/ssl/servercerts/serverkey.pem:
Verifying - Enter pass phrase for /etc/ssl/servercerts/serverkey.pem:
:/usr/bin # openssl req -new -key /etc/ssl/servercerts/serverkey.pem -out /etc/ssl/servercerts/cacert.csr
Enter pass phrase for /etc/ssl/servercerts/serverkey.pem:
You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
For some fields there will be a default value,
If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.
Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:US
State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:
Locality Name (eg, city) []:
Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []: 
Common Name (eg, YOUR name) []:www.example.com
Email Address []:support_info@example.com

Please enter the following 'extra' attributes
to be sent with your certificate request
A challenge password []:
An optional company name []:
:/usr/bin #

The IntermediateCA1 must be a workgroup member because it is not connected with the network and has no connectivity to a domain controller. It is also important to ensure that the computer name of this server is unique in the organization's network
