Backtrack 4 and virtual machine problem

I have googled everywhere and only find articles about installing BT4 on a VM with windows, I need to know how to install virtual machine on BT4 to run windows as a VM within BT4. I know it is based on ubuntu and need to install DKMS, because that is the error I get when trying to run the Windows VM within BT4. I did a "apt-get install dkms" because I read a article about installing machine machine on ubuntu and others having that error but when I do that command on BT4 is says

"Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
dkms: Depends: linux-headers but it is not installable
E: Broken packages"

has anyone used virtual box on BT4? how did you get it too work? thanks
