I have Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop with kernel 2.6.32-23-generic, and it has the module under /lib/modules/2.6.32-23-generic/kernel/drivers/virtio.

If the file really is missing, perhaps you have installed a minimal installation and still need to install some virtualization support, such as ubuntu-virt-server package?
