Well I am running Eclipse 3.1 (which is the latest stable version
currently) under Debian unstable.  I installed JDK 1.5 from Sun
using the java-package utility, and I even have WTP working 
under Eclipse.

I installed it in /usr/local/eclipse.  The only SDK I have installed
is the 1.5 one.  It might be worth passing in the -vm parameter 
to eclipse to be sure you are using the right one.
