I found the answer — I am being hosted by GoDaddy and here is the answer posted up by another user that worked for me.
I’ve been using GoDaddy for over 10 years, and for over 2 with WordPress.
Changing the permalinks from the default to any other custom version DOES work – you really just have to wait a few minutes for it to all resolve on the server.
Trust me – set them to your “pretty” version and load up your page. Click around, get your “404” errors, and then go grab something to eat.
When you come back, it should all be resolved.
If for some reason it takes more than half an hour (which it’s never taken for me – usually less than 10 minutes), there may be other issues with your hosting setup, or your installation. But for me, time and time again, it’s just a matter of patience. 🙂
