Parent drop-down not appearing for custom post type

Question

I’m trying to create a custom post type that I can associate with parent posts (they are posts not pages). WordPress is version 3.0.1. I was hoping to see a list of posts in a parent post drop-down under Page-Attributes but all I get its an ‘Order’ field. Have I missed something vital?

register_post_type( 'mytest_post_type',
    array(
        'labels' => array(
                'name' => __( 'mytest Interviews' ),
                'singular_name' => __( 'mytest Interview' ),
                'add_new' => __( 'Add New' ),
                'add_new_item' => __( 'Add New mytest Interview' ),
                'edit' => __( 'Edit' ),
                'edit_item' => __( 'Edit mytest Interview' ),
                'new_item' => __( 'New mytest Int.' ),
                'view' => __( 'View mytest Inteview' ),
                'view_item' => __( 'View mytest Int.' ),
                'search_items' => __( 'Search mytest Interviews' ),
                'not_found' => __( 'No mytest Interviews found' ),
                'not_found_in_trash' => __( 'No mytest Interviews found in Trash' ),
                'parent' => __( 'Parent mytest Interview' ),

        ),
        'public' => true,
        'show_ui' => true,
        'hierarchical' => true,
        'query_var' => true,
        'supports' => array('title', 'editor', 'author','custom-fields','page-attributes'),

    )
);

Or is it not possible to create a new custom post type and have those new posts be children of existing posts?

thanks!
