I just got parallels 5 and installed Win7 and unbuntu on my mbp. Do I want to download 9400m drivers for each? I did that with a Win7 bootcamp partition on my mini and it works way better than whatever came with bootcamp.

No. Parallels presents a virtual video card to the O/S so your O/S does not talk to the mini's video card directly. That is why Bootcamp programs are faster that use graphics. You do need to check to make sure that you have Parallels' latest drivers.
