When clicking OK after completing the New Site Content Type form in MOSS 2007, I get the following error:  

Code 403  Forbidden
Your request for https://<site path>/_layouts/ctypenew.aspx was denied.  Denied by Access Control List (ACL).

One of my colleagues with the same admin permissions is able to successfully execute the function.  I have no trouble with other functions.

This is usually a computer issue.  More specifically, a setting issue in IE.  Check your content advisor and proxy settings.

By Admin permissions do you mean local admin, domain admin, farm admin or site collection admin?  Local and domain admins do NOT automatically inherit permissions and farm admins do NOT automatically inherit site collection permissions.

Also, if someone accidently did an override for your account you could be blocked.

This turned out to be a firewall problem in a complex and locked down environment.
