    OK back to basics what are you actually trying to achieve here

    I'm assuming you've got ubuntu installed and want to run another os within ubuntu as a virtual?

    Or have you got another os installed and want to run ubuntu within it as a virtual?

    what do you think you have to burn?

    If you have got ubuntu installed and you think v'box is installed - open a terminal (apps >accessories) and run virtualbox from there

    Code:
    VirtualBox

    Ok screenshot helps - have tried doing as it asks

    open aterminal

    Code:
    sudo apt-cache search virtualbox*
    will find all the relevant packages - one will look like this - virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.22-14-generic

    It's wanting you to install that, replace packagename with correct modules package

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install packagename
    once that's installed do the other bit

    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv start
    and try to start it again

    Step 1
    Enable extra repositories

    Step 2
    Go to System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager

    Step 3
    Search for virtualbox

    Step 4
    Right-click VirtualBox and mark it for installation

    Step 5
    Click Apply

    replace packagename with correct modules package
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.22-14-generic
    and then run this again

    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv start
    you won't find many packages called packagename
