There was actually a post about this just a few days ago. You most
likely downloaded the wrong eclipse package. You want to get the eclipse
SDK. I'm running 3.1RC1 at the moment, and it comes in at 92 MB. If you
got something smaller then you just got the eclipse environment without
the associated SDK bits (like java, etc).
