Can't install VirtualBox on Hardy box that previously had VirtualBox-OSE

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Ok, so I should have done a little more digging up front rather than just using the add/remove to install virtual box on my HH box. I did not realize at the time that there were two versions of the VB install and the Add/Remove just installs the OSE version. I'd like to pull it off and install the normal version; however, when I do so, I get the following error:
cannonj@slc34128843ulx:~/ziptest$ sudo dpkg -i virtualbox_1.6.0-30421_Ubuntu_hardy_i386.deb (Reading database ... 159687 files and directories currently installed.) Unpacking virtualbox (from virtualbox_1.6.0-30421_Ubuntu_hardy_i386.deb) ... dpkg: error processing virtualbox_1.6.0-30421_Ubuntu_hardy_i386.deb (--install): trying to overwrite `/lib/modules/2.6.24-16-generic/misc/vboxdrv.ko', which is also in package virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.24-16-generic dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe) Errors were encountered while processing: virtualbox_1.6.0-30421_Ubuntu_hardy_i386.deb
Any help would be appreciated.
