    I was unable to get the Parallels Tools installed in Debian 5.02 by following the instructions.
    I kept getting "bad interpreter: Permission denied" until I:
    1. copied the files and folders to the hard disk
    2. gave my root account read and write access to all the files
    3. used sh ./install instead of just ./install

    Then, I got an error that the required components weren't installed, most likley since the Debian CD wasn't mounted any longer since the Parallels Tools ISO was attached.

    I remounted my ISO and:
    1. apt-get install gcc
    2. apt-get install make
    3. uname -r
    4. apt-get install linux-headers-"results from uname -r"

    I then re-ran "sh ./install" and the installer found another missing component and automatically installed it since the Debian ISO was available.

    Just wanted to say, this just worked for me with Parallels Server 3 / Mac and Debian 5. Only thing to add is that I copied the parallel tools iso contents to a local directory, chmod -R 777 /localdir and then did the "sh .install"...I did not need to download anything else...Also, you can combine steps 3 and 4 like so:

    apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`

    hope this helps someone else!

    Here's an easy fix:
    - mount the parallels update disc
    - open up 'root terminal'
    - drag the 'install' file from the parallels disc into the 'root terminal' window
    - press 'enter'
    - this will run & install the tools with all the right permissions

    Until you install all dependencies the parallel tool not gonna install.
    So install all dependencies then "sh ./install" then may be work.
