Are you using Fedora 7? Are you trying to use the Fedora 7 package from VirtualBox's website? You will first need to do this in a terminal:


sh [filename of extractor]

This will extract an RPM file that you can now double-click (in a graphical file browser), provide your root password, and install it. You can also install it from a terminal using the rpm command (with something like -ivh or similar).
