Trying to install Ubuntu on Virtual Machine (Virtual Box)

After downloading a CD DVD copy of Ubuntu 12.10 and burning it to a CD, I attempted to install Ubuntu in a Virtual Machine. I get the error:

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine"  CliffWindows.  

I think it also said something about missing the Kernel Driver or some such, but not sure seems that went away on second or third try...

The virtual machine 'CliffWindows' has terminated unexpectedly during startup.  
Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component: Machine
Interface: IMachine {22781af3-1c96-4126-9edf-67a020e0e858}
