I think that's not possible unless you write some browser-plugin. Self
signed certificates are not installed automatically, which is a good
thing. Think of the following scenario: The webserver of your bank is
rooted and the fake SSL-Cert installs automatically.
If you have a recurring group of visitors on different servers you can
install your CA-Cert on these clients, so that not every certificate
signed by you has to be installed manually.

I suggest getting certificates from trusted CA-authorities (Geotrust,
Verisign, Thawte, Godaddy, etc). You also may be interested in wildcard
domain certificates, if you have a lot of subdomains.
