Frequently I get a message from IE saying something like the revocation information for a parties certificate is not available. Should I be concerned if I am not woried about the instability of the company I am dealing with?

In most likelihood, what is happening is that IE is not able to download the "Certificate Revocation List" (CRL) from the location (URL) mentioned in the certificate. This could happen if the certificate is signed by a CA which doesn't publish CRLs.
I wouldn't worry too much about it unless the application is really sensitive or the IT deptt. guidelines forbid use of such certificates.
