I m receiving a 404 page not found error when I change permalink

  1. Hey,
    I m trying WordPress on my pc. I installed correctly, after that when I imported some posts from another WordPress blog, I thought to change the permalink to "month and name" from default.
    After I changed and I m trying to access the post by clicking it. Then I receive following error

    Title: 404 Not Found

    Not Found

    The requested URL /2011/04/name-of-my-post/ was not found on this server.

    Someone please tell me what is wrong...
