First thanks for te quick responces.  I hope I didn't sound like I was trying
to dump this on my DBA, but I was having a bad day and that was just one more

The quick answer is RTFM first suggested by "Markham, Richard"
<> who responded first and most succencly.

"are you running Oracle Apps 11i or just the 9iAS?
everything you need to know is in MetaLink if you have access."

The document at Oracle was
DocID Note: 184432.1
subject: configuring SSL with Oracle HTTP Server in 9iAS Release 2

In a nut shell, Oracle packages OpenSSL with Apache, customizes, and delivers
tools to interact with it all.  Use Oracle Wallet Manager to create a
Certificate Request, export that and submit to your choice of CA, import the
Certificate into OWM and, using the same front end, configure Oracle 9iASr2 to
use the new cert and it handles all the vi work of editing *.conf files and
restarting processes.

-Subject: verisign 128 bit cert for Oracle's apache
-I'm in a pinch and need to purchase and install a Verisign 128 bit certificate
-for the Apache that shipped with and installed with Oracle 8i.  I need to have
-this done by week end and since it's a productin box I can't down the server
-during 8-8 M-F and at $900 each I can't buy a cert and install on our test box
-for the purpose of getting the process tested before going live.  
-My DBA has turned his back on this calling it a systems job despite the fact
-that I havn't seen the install on Apache that Oracle before today.  
-Any help or pointers or links will be greatly appreciated.
-I know this is rather general, but any time I save will be a big help.  Thanks
-in advance and I'll summarize.
