Great that you got it to work in Parallels!

I switched to VMWare Fusion a while ago, it has much better support  
for "not officially supported" Linux distributions. Like, whenever a  
new X server comes out, Parallels needs a year to get their display  
driver updated (and if you are unlucky like me you would have to pay  
again for an upgrade to get it). With VMware I just recompiled the  
driver and was done.
