problem with virtualbox and vboxdrv driver


Hi all, I've installed ubuntu 8.04, after I've installed VirtualBox and its modules. I created a disk for installing Windows XP but I have the following message:

VirtualBox kernel driver not installed. The vboxdrv kernel module was either not installed or /dev/vboxdrv was not created for some reason. Please install the virtualbox-ose-modules package for your kernel...

VBox status code: -1908 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED).

When I boot system I have following output about VirtualBox:

*Starting VirtualBox kernel module vboxdrv
*No suitable module for running kernel found
*Starting VirtualBox host networking

After I logged in the system:

#uname -r
2.6.24-16-server

What is the problem?
How can I solve this problem?

Thanks,
savio
