See the current library docs:
This is what will appear in GHC 6.8, except that Control.Parallel has now
moved into the parallel package (and the online docs don't seem to reflect
this, which is strange - Ian, any ideas?).
In GHC 6.6.x you need to get pseq from GHC.Conc. We noticed this mistake
only after the 6.6 release.

That module has better documentation now, follow the link above.
