404 when adding Configurable Product

I am just setting up my inventory in a fresh install.  I currently have 20-something simple products, some of which I want to combine in a configurable product.  Problem!

I click to add a new product, choose my category, and the “configurable” option.  The screen comes up asking me to choose the attributes associated with this configurable product (one that was pre-loaded in the system, and one I entered myself).  Regardless of whether or not I choose one or both of these options (an combination), when I click Continue I am redirected to a frontend 404 error page.  What the heck is going on here???

After 24 hours of hair-pulling, reinstalling and general freaking out, I’ve discovered the problem.  Apparently the 404 error when attempting to create or edit configurable products was coming from a setting in the Configuration -> Inventory section, where I had set the system to NOT manage stock.  With that option set to “YES” instead, configurable products seem to be working fine again.
