I am looking to add a Unix OS to my Mac to be run via Parallels software. Are there any recommendations that are preferred? I'll be using this to familiarize myself with Unix.

For the purpose, I would run Linux in Virtual Box. Saves you a lot of trouble.

Here is a tutorial on how to install Win8 in Virtual Box. But it may be helpful because the principle would be the same. You just have to choose a different host and guest OS.
