First guess:  Make sure the issuer of the cert that your RADIUS server
is using is signed by a CA that the client trusts.  (It has to be in the
"trusted root CA" store in the certs MMC.  You have to create this MMC;
instructions are somewhere in [1].)

If so, then the XP supplicant can be configured to only connect to a
server cert that's been signed by a subset of the trusted root CAs --
the setting is called "validate server certficate", and it's under the
PEAP properties.  It's turned on by default, so you have to check the
root CA that signed your server's cert.  Maybe your supplicant has a
similar setting?
