    You could install from the tarball but it would be much easier if you just install the Ubuntu package through Synaptic - just search for 'virtualbox'. Or you can use apt-get as follows (haven't done this myself so have a look for a HOWTO if it doesn't work):
    Code:
    apt-get install virtualbox-ose
    This will mean downloading again but it's so much easier to do this it will save a lot of time.

    If you are wanting usb support for virtualbox I suggest downloading and installing
    virtualbox 1.6 as virtualbox-ose in the repos do not have usb support yet.
