As far as I'm aware, there are no virtualization-on-non-VT-hardware
packages in Ubuntu's main repositories.  i.e.. kqemu, vbox, xen are
all in Universe.  Canonical traditionally focuses the majority of its
efforts in delivering and supporting the packages in Ubuntu main.

I have very little experience with Virtual Box.  Sorry.
