Cannot get win2000 to start in Virtualbox


I am on Kubuntu 8.04. I have installed and configured VB. When I try to start guest OS win2000, I get

The VirtualBox kernel driver is not accessible to the current user. Make sure that the user has write permissions for /dev/vboxdrv by adding them to the vboxusers groups. You will need to logout for the change to take effect..
VBox status code: -1909 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_ACCESSIBLE

Googling gives reports of similar probs. Could someone tell me how to proceed?

This may be a dumb question, but have you tried doing what it says?

I am subscribed to vboxusers group. About vboxdrv I dont know and dont know how to. When I clicked on Start, the OS was not yet installed. How do I actually install OS on created Virtual disk?

Since I don't use Virtual Box, I can't help you--you'll probably have to direct your problems to them. Considering you've gotten no other responses it looks like it's rarely used.
