Code Signing

Someone save me from the brink of insanity. I have tried every
freaking code sample or thread I have found regarding code signing. I
used the very famous code project link, which doesn't seem to work.
Here's what I've done. Am I missing something?

Code Project Link:
http://www.codeproject.com/useritems/signcode.asp

1) I created a cert with makecert
2) I created my pfx file from the cert I made
3) I grabbed the sha1 and base 64 number from the cert and setup the
provisioning doc.
4) I created a cab to run the XML and ran the cab on my PDA, it worked
just fine. I'm assuming it provisioned correctly. I used the example
from code project.
5) I signed another cab file I have with signtool. That worked fine as
well.
6) I installed the cab file on the PDA and was promped because it was
from an unknown publisher.

WTF! Do I need a mobile to market cert? I thought I read that I
wouldn't get this prompt if I signed the cab file and its assemblies.
I don't get this prompt after the first install, but I don't want to
see that prompt at all. Someone please help.

Thanks in advance!

The post from code project did work. The problem was with signtool.
For whatever reason it wasn't signing my cab file. It said it was, but
for some reason it wasn't working. I finally resorted to using the
Authenticode Signing in the designer. That seemed to work just fine.
After I did that my cab installed with no prompts.
