Ok. I added the repositories to /etc/apt/sources.list and did sudo apt-get update then I went sudo apt-get install gcc and it did.

I then did this:

eeepc-calebperr:/home/user/My Documents/Downloads> dpkg -i virtualbox_1.5.4-27034_Debian_etch_i386.deb
Selecting previously deselected package virtualbox.
(Reading database ... 74136 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking virtualbox (from virtualbox_1.5.4-27034_Debian_etch_i386.deb) ...
Setting up virtualbox (1.5.4-27034_Debian_etch) ...
Unable to find a precompiled module for the current kernel
though module compilation denied by debconf setting.
Starting VirtualBox kernel module: vboxdrv
* Modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why.
Starting VirtualBox host networking...done.

eeepc-calebperr:/home/user/My Documents/Downloads>

Can someone help me with this one?
