I have configured a Dot1X authentication on my cisco switchs and it worked perfectly... The only issue that I am facing is that some windows xp computers in the network is lacking the option of dot1x configuration in NIC properties.is there a way to add the authentication tab to xp machines which dont have that?

Use the manufacturers driver.  Not the one from the Microsoft update page.
