Problems solved! I downloaded and ran the from the site (Downloads > Linux hosts > right-click "AMD64" in 'All Distributions'). I did have to set virtualization in the BIOS in order to permit 64bit WIN7 VMs (my problem quoted above). All I had to do was execute the .run file and reboot (to start the /etc/init.d scripts). The virtualbox .run file has the advantage over the SlackBuilds repository in that it is a more recent version, not to mention easier to install!

Thanks all!


build from source, slackware 14.2, virtualbox
