First, become a root and install all required prerequisites:
root@server01[~]# yum install SDL make automake autoconf gcc kernel-devel dkms
Download RPM binary package of Virtualbox:
root@server01[~]# wget http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualb ... 1.i686.rpm
Next install a downloaded RPM package with rpm command:
root@server01[~]# rpm -i VirtualBox-3.2-3.2.12_68302_fedora14-1.i686.rpm
Recompile vboxdrv modules:

Make your self belong to a group vboxusers:
