    ubuntu on Parallels
    i want to install ubuntu on my macbook with parallels but everytime i try to boot from the standard 7.10 iso i get this failure message:

    The display server has been shut down about 6 times in the last 90 seconds. It is likely that something bad is going on. Waiting for 2 minutes before trying again on display :0.
    is it possible to install ubuntu on parallels?
