Security error connecting to PIX 501 PPTP VPN

Using the VPN Wizard in PDM I have setup PPTP VPN on the PIX.

When I connect from the Windows XP Client I get an error.
Error 742: The remote computer does not support the required data encryption type.

If I turn off data encryption on the XP Client it connects fine.

I can't see any options on the PIX to set the encryption type.

How do I set the encryption on the PIX to be compatible with the XP PPTP client ?
