But these two directories are soft links. The */source is a soft link to */build and build t's a soft link to this directory /usr/src/kernels/188.8.131.52-117.fc10.x86_64 which does not exist. does this mean i have to rebuild my kernel? if so i dont know where to begin. Thanks a lot for everyones help.

Thanks a lot, DaveAs root, or via sudo, just install kernel devel: sudo yum install kernel-devel and then run sudo service vboxdrv setup and that should then build the vbox driver and install it. I am not sure what had done in the past to get /usr/src/kernels/22.214.171.124-170.2.5.fc10.x86_64 You or someone had probably booted kernel 126.96.36.199-170.2.5.fc10.x86_64 and then installed kernel-devel.

David, So, you are booted with kernel 188.8.131.52-117.fc10.x86_64
and you already have kernel-deve. Good.
Now do this:
rm -f source build
ln -sf /usr/src/kernels/184.108.40.206-117.fc10.x86_64 build
service vboxdrv setup
