LD> What would you suggest?
As far as I remember, Fedora's kernel-devel does not contain kernel
headers - they are supposed to be installed separately. Try to search
for kernel-headers, kernel-inlcudes or kernel-* in yum - alas, I don't
remember the exact name of the package you need (haven't used Fedora
for a long time).

P.S. Just to make things clear: I'm not a VirtualBox developer.
