Hard Drive Not Shown When Trying To Install To Hard Drive In Fedora 16


I recently recieved a fresh computer with no operating system on it. My first idea was to put Fedora on it since I've used it before and it's free. Anyway, once it came up from my live disk I went to "Install to Hard Drive" but in the Basic Storage Devices I get the error "No suitable disks have been found" and in the other option my Hard Drive isnt on the list. I had my hard drive checked over and tested so I know its in working condition, so I have no idea why it isen't working.

Can you see the hard drive in the BIOS?

First off, what version of Fedora is it (changes my answer) ?.
If you know how to open a terminal session (like a command prompt in Windoze) enter this command (that's a lower case ell, not a numeral one)
Code:
su -c "parted -l"
Post the output here.
