|Subject:||Trusting IIS7 self signed certificates|

IIS7 in Vista provides the ability to create self signed certificates....which is a very nice feature for ASP.Net
developers when developing ssl web sites and web services. However the certificates are not trusted, which means a
browser will always present a warning, and I suspect (though I have not tested) accessing a local web service that
requires ssl would fail. I have tried adding the self signed certificate to the trusted root certificates (though I
think the self signing may already have done this).
Is there any way to trust a self signed certificate....or do I have to get a certificate from a certificate authority?
I only need this for local development and testing. Currently I use win2k3 server as my os which, of course, can create
its own certificates without this problem...but I'm looking to migrate to vista
