That tool is basically how you would install any certificate other than 
one ultimately authenticated by Microsoft, e.g. intranet or extranet 
root certificates, email identities, etc.  It will give you options as 
to where in the Windows certificate store to save the certificate, 
depending on the uses associated with the certificate.

It is basically how you would install a privately self signed 
certificate into IE, other Windows browsers, and authenticode.
