Installing Network Solution SSL Certificate in Apache2 - Debian Stable.

I've currently got the setup below for my apache2 installation on my debian stable box. I need to install this new network solutions ssl certificate I purchased and when I try to follow their instructions the server dies. Here is the existing config file that I have.

Right now in /etc/apache2/sites-available/secure-intranet I have the code below. Debian does not use the httpd.conf file but instead uses sites-available and apache2.conf located in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

I'm lost as to how to install the certificates. I've received the following files from Network Solutions:

The instructions on their website are here: http://customersupport.networksoluti...cle.php?id=722

But since I don't use the httpd.conf and everything seems to be referenced in the file i've pasted below, i'm lost. I've attempted to do this myself but have just managed to stop apache2 from startign and killing it. So now i'm back to square one.
