Well I was able to import the certificate and use it for SSL FTP!

1) The issuer (EDS) emailed me the certificate in a text file.

2) I FTP'ed it from my PC to the IFS.

3) In DCM, after selecting the certificate store, expand 'Fast Path' in the
left-hand menu and select 'Work with CA Certificates'.

4) Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click on 'Import'.

5) Enter the path and filename of the certificate to be imported

6) After it is imported, expand 'Manage Applications' in the left-hand menu
and select 'Manage Applications'

7) Select Define CA Trust List.

8) Select Server or Client (in my case, client)

9) Select the application (in my case OS/400 FTP).  Oddly, even after
completing the process, the 'certificate assigned' column shows 'None
Assigned'. and click on Define CA Trust List.

10) Select the CAs you want to trust and click on OK on the bottom.

At this point, I was all set.
