I'm not the sharpest crayon, and was getting frustrated by the fact that erasing my hard drive and reinstalling Snow Leopard and my applications would not get my computer to start up without the Mac OS X Install disc inserted. In the course of that, in Disk Utility, since none of the options were working and my computer would not recognize my backup drive, I ended up copying the Install disc as the source onto my one partition on my hard drive. Now, the computer starts up, but goes directly to the install proceedure. However, there is no drive to select to install Mac OS X to. Disk Utility won't allow for the option to erase the drive again. How do I make my computer usable again?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
