It'll run in VMware so I'd be surprised if Parallels doesn't support it.

Windows 3 ran on VMware...

I *think* you can install the XP upgrade without installing 98 first. It'll ask for the CD to verify it as part of the installation.

It's also quite easy to bypass the CD check by adding a few files to the 98 image.
