Apparently Windows automatically sends non-CA certificates in DER or PEM
format to the "Other People' certificate store. More importantly, the
wireless supplicant in Windows XP \will not work with PEM or DER formatted
client certificates. It'll complain that you have no certificate. You must
convert to pkcs12 as the documentation states.

openssl pkcs12 -export -in certname.pem \
-inkey keyname.key -out name.p12 -clcerts*
