@dave: serial with FPGA as master means that the FPGHA is in charge of loading a serial bitstream from the outside world (usually a Flash memory chip). Parallel with FPGA as master is the same, but using a multi-bit-wide bus
Parallel with FPGA as slave might be using an external MCU to load the configuration data into the FPGA... etc
