For some strange reason, when I start up my Linux VM in Parallels 3.0, it refuses to auto-detect the network, and I have to manually connect it every single time. I'm using Shared Networking, the default. Also, I am experiencing two other annoying and related issues: Attempting to install Parallels Tools fails with the error: Code: sh: bad interpreter: permission denied I'm running the install as root... what gives? Parallels has a habit of unexpectedly quitting if my Mac sleeps while it is running. If this happens, my VM gets corrupted and can't be opened... so I have to reinstall again.
