windows 2003 "previous versions" for a single file

Hi
Using explorer, if a right-click a folder and select the "previous versions" tab, I get a load of previous versions of the folder which I can enter and select an old copy of a file. As expected!
However, if I right-click a file and select the "previous versions" tab, I always get a blank list.

This occurs at xp sp2 workstations and at the server 2003.
Is this right? Is there some config issue somewhere?

thanks

if so, why have the tab when you right click a file?
surely it should show the previous versions of that file you're looking at?
if not at least I know what to tell my customers!
