You can do it by installing the certificate in the "trusted root certification authorities" on your IE or NN.

These are the instructions on how to it on IE. Select "view certificate" when the security alert comes up. Then select "install certificate" You'll see a "certificate import wizard" window come up. Click next and then you have to select "Place all certificates in the following store" now click on "browse" and select "trusted root certificate authorities" then just click "next" and "finish."

You can do the same thing with Netscape. It is something similar to what I described above. You will have to do this with every computer where you do not want the "security alert" to come up.
