Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I guess I'll answer my own question.

The way to install Mint on Parallels, which does not support Mint, is very simple. When Parallels Prompts you for the OS you are wanting to emulate, in the newest version 6, just pick Ubuntu and since KA is the same kernel it installs and puts Parallels tools on automatically. Easy as pie. Note that this is on Mac's version of Parallels and I have not tried it on PC.
