I was frustrated beyond belief every time I needed to setup a 3rd Party SSL certificate on Novell's Vibe. The TIDS are missing relevant information necessary to be successful, and the learning curve and troubleshooting process to get through it is a hassle.
In this article, I detailed the process step by step including screen shots. It's specific to Go Daddy certificates, however the information should be mostly relevant for any 3rd Party SSL Provider.
I posted the full article on my own company blog. The link to the article is below. I opted to just post a link rather than rewrite/format the content due to the numerous images within the article. My apologies if this is a problem for some.
