Click on Screen options in the top right corner of the screen. And select Discussion. Than you'll see that checkbox to enable/disable comments. enter image description here

thank you so much this was driving me nuts – JasonDavis Sep 15 '11 at 2:42

Look in the top right corner of the screen for view options. Click the link to reveal a drop-down. That has check-box options. One of them will say discussions. Click it and you should see the allow/disallow comments check-boxes.
