To manage the certificate you can use the scripts in the easy-rsa
directory of the openVPN source archive. 
There is also a directory called sample-config-files. Have a look at the
server.conf and client.conf these are pretty good templates to start
your project. You should only need to generate the certificates and
modify a few things in the config files (Network addresses and the like)
to make your VPN work. 

There is also plenty of information on the website and some pretty
decent tutorials.
