VPN and SSL - Expert Held Needed!

VPN/SSL question - Expert Help Needed! I would like to connect to a Usenet provider through a VPN. The Usenet provider offers an SSL connection. The VPN will be an OpenVPN connection. My understanding is that, under this scenario: the usenet provider will know what files I download but not my IP address or who I am (setting aside billing information), while the VPN provider will know my IP address and what Usenet provider I connect to, but not what files I download. Is that correct? [more inside]

What's the cheapest way to get an SSL certificate?

What's the cheapest way to get an SSL certificate (for serving HTTPS connections)? Obviously I'd want the company selling these certs to be listed in most browsers as a trusted authority.
