Default Fur shadows

Hi all,
I have a problem with my fur shadows, I enable light linking to the fur to get the self-shadows, and I have enable the light to cast shadows, but I can't seem to get the fur shadows to show up on the floor in the render.
I am I missing a setting?

ooh didnt see this thread, it worked fine for me. Check all your flags on light and object, try different shadowing modes. I dont think fur objects cast shadow by default, check the flag on that.
