Sharepoint - Cannot complete this action

I have Windows 2003 server running WSS.

In any of my sites, if you into Modify settings and columns and make a change like change column order or change the configuration of a column, you receive the error:
Cannot complete this action.
Please try again.

Not sure how to fix/troubleshoot this.

I found this document: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=894631&FR=1
It makes reference to:
