    Hi,

    I just finish to install Debian 6.0.5 but i don't succeed in installing the Parallels Tools (7).

    In fact, i mount the cd and i do :

    cd media
    cd cdrom
    su root
    *********
    ./install

    But i have this message : bash ./install : permission denied
    When i try to make a chmod debian told me that i just have the reading rights even if i'm root.

    Just remount CDROM with execution permission enabled.

    Sorry, but can you explain how to do it.
    It doesn't work even if i'm root before mount the Parallels Tools :/

    You don't have to reboot system to remount you disk. Try this:
    $ su root
    # mount -o remount,exec /media/cdrom
    # /media/cdrom/install

    Thank you. I have been searching many forums for a very long time. I have read so many rehashed commands it not even funny.
    This was the exact fix I need. A thousand thanks.
