virtualbox in xubuntu

problem solved, i installed dkms


I desperately want to use Linux (Windows has really annoyed me recently). After much searching, I found Xubuntu. A distribution that looks right for me. Just one problem. I need to use two pieces of software designed for windows (Sigmaplot and Minitab) because my boss uses them. I heard that virtualbox might help. But i cant seem to get it working.

I have downloaded what i think is the correct version of VirtualBox for Ubuntu 8.1, and I assume this should work for Xubuntu 8.1.

Unfortunately when i try to "install" it i get the error "Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: llbqt4-network"

can someone please help,

i appreciate your time, thank you
