Check this thread: mini-+-osx-+-virtualization-=--t4277.html
It explains the problem of V3 vs V4.
Some folks have had good luck with Virtual Box from Sun which is free.

I hacked the installer on Parallels 4 to get it to install. It still won't run. It's physically hard coded to use VT-x and just cannot run without it. Once you've gotten it installed, it's all kinds of confused over what's wrong, it doesn't do any more checking, it just assumes that if it got this far, you must have VT-x..
What's screwy is the z series Atoms do have VT-x, but the superior N series that we use don't have it.. That's a real shame.
