[Xen-users] why can't i install parted on CentOS distributed with XCP ISO binary?

i am investigating what the XCP installation process did to my hard drive.

when i issue: fdisk -l, i get the following output.

WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util
fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.
WARNING: The size of this disk is 3.0 TB (3000592982016 bytes).
DOS partition table format can not be used on drives for volumes
larger than 2.2 TB (2199023255040 bytes). Use parted(1) and GUID
partition table format (GPT).
Disk /dev/sda: 3000.5 GB, 3000592982016 bytes

/dev/sda1   *           1      266306  2147483647+  ee  EFI GPT

as such, i wanted to run the "parted" command. however, running this
command says "command not found." i tried to install the parted

yum install parted

but the output was

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Setting up Install Process
No package parted available.
Nothing to do

what's going on here? what do i have to modify in /etc/yum.repos.d/*
if anything?

any help is appreciated.
