I found the solution on a very nice person's blog. (blog.furrytailapps.com)
You must generate the application and installation certificates separately! I saw both types with a checkbox and clicked CREATE .. never once even dreaming I didn't get what I'd asked for. So I now have both certs. yay.
However... I have a new question that I hope someone can answer... How to create a submittable PKG?
I have xcode 3.2.5 + application loader 1.1 (which enabled the build and archive option).
starting with a clean slate, I click "Build and archive".. it builds.. and in organizer, i see an entry. I click "Share" then "Save to disk" and I sign it with my shiny new certificate. It saves instantly, I click "show in finder" and there is only a directory :
/Users/kenk/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Archived Applications/5FDFBDF9-E654-49D6-AC40-A6ED615A76BF.apparchive
but no PKG
It seems pretty clear to me from everything I've read, and from application loader itself expecting to find a PKG, that the "save to disk" should have generated one. What have I missed? There aren't any options in Organizer, nothing in apploader.
I can't submit without a PKG so I'm stumped.

For me, though, submitting with Xcode would not work, I think because my application's name has a space in it. So, I ended up using "Application Loader" and tried a few times until it got uploaded properly. But, as far as the signing process goes, I would suggest you read the FAQ about the Mac App Store here: https://devforums.apple.com/thread/75228?tstart=0. Make sure you follow the instructions of question number 8 to the letter. Depending on the version of Xcode you're using, there might be a bug in the signing process.
