Windows 7: How to digitally sign my own .sys file?

How to digitally sign my own .sys file?

I have written a .sys kernel driver, which I want to install on my own computer. This is not intended for distribution.
I do have a verifiable digital certificate, which is embedded in my Firefox. I'd like to be able to use this certificate to sign my .sys file, so that I can run it without using Test Mode. I could also send this signed file to friends to use.
I could if need be obtain a certificate in some form other than Firefox.
I'd also like someone to explain just what a signed driver is. Does the signature alter the .sys file, or is the signature something that is put in the registry to match the .sys file with a certificate, or what??
