On the XP machines you can either uncheck the "Validate server certificate" in 
the EAP properties (not recommended) or you can specify the trusted root 
certificate that you are using (check the box in the list) and the RADIUS 
server names.

The validation is not a big deal and you only have to do it once unless you 
are wiping the eapinfo from the registry on shutdown.
