The error message is telling you that one possibility is that the driver module is not loaded. So did you check whether or not it is loaded? The command is lsmod ("list loaded modules"). If it's not, then load it now, and add it to /etc/conf.d/modules (see the SL Wiki article HOWTO: Using Virtualbox).

Thanks Fitz, the issue is now resolved...after the recent update I forgot to install the appropriate version of virtualbox compatible with the newer kernel.

Thanks for bearing with my stupid questions =)
