Import self signed cert into IE 6 and 7

Locate the cert or crt file on the webserver. In the case of this server, it is:
https://jamesconner.us/jamesconner.us.cert

Once you access the cert or crt file via the browser, it will ask if you want to open the file, or save it. Open the file, and then click on the "Import" button and follow the remaining instructions. Once that's done, you will be able to access the website without the annoying IE complaints about invalid site certificates.

Firefox makes this a bit easier and can import the cert permamently without having to actually access the cert or crt file as a seperate process, by simply telling the browser to accept the certificate permanently when the HTTPS site is first contacted.
