I downloaded and installed Virualbox. I created a virtual machine but when I try to start the machine I got this error msg:
"please install the virtualbox-ose-modules package for your kernel and execute 'modprobe vboxdrv' as root.
Vbox status code:-1908 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED)"

when I entered apt-get update it wont install the packages from the virtualbox ftp site.

virtualbox-ose-modules is another package you need. Try running
Code:
$ sudo apt-cache search virtualbox
and it should be listed in there somewhere, and then
Code:
$ sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose-(whatever the full name is)
