No Shadows when I render in XSI?

Okay,, this might seem like a dumb question..
but never really rendered anything in XSI, so I am new at this..
I can't seem to make the shadows show up~?
I went over the objects visibility and shadows are checked,,
even in the render region options... I tried w/ spot light, area light,,point light.,, but somehow I can't see any shadows ~!!

I tried just making a cone on top of a box to test it out just right now,, but no shadow...

what am i doing wrong? can someone help me out~

thanks~

Select the light... press 3 to access the rendering toolbar... click Modify>Shader... in the resulting PPG, make sure that the shadows enabled checkbox is checked...

That's the only thing you didn't mention in your description of your steps.
