The hdparm package contains the tool that let's you look at and change your hard drive settings. It's seldom needed for working hard drives, and you can install it from the repositories after you get F16 up and running.

Here's the start of the man hdparm output:
HDPARM(8)                                                                                        HDPARM(8)

       hdparm - get/set SATA/IDE device parameters

       hdparm [options] [device ...]

       hdparm  provides  a  command  line  interface  to  various kernel interfaces supported by the Linux
       SATA/PATA/SAS "libata" subsystem and the older IDE driver subsystem.  Many newer (2008  and  later)
       USB  drive  enclosures now also support "SAT" (SCSI-ATA Command Translation) and therefore may also
       work with hdparm.  E.g. recent WD "Passport" models and recent NexStar-3 enclosures.  Some  options
       may work correctly only with the latest kernels.

It sounds like your disc's gone bad.
