Can you try logging on as another administrative user?  (Make another user, if necessary.)
And just for the heck of it, if you click the lock and unlock the rest of the controls, does the checkbox appear?
Another thought: is your computer part of a Windows domain or other network?  Is there a policy on the network to require a screen saver password?  (For example on my office's Windows network, a screen saver password requirement is set in the Group Policy.  I'm assuming that something similar can be done with an OSX server, if you haven't joined the Mac to a Windows Active Directory network.)
