There are several choices. You could do File > Import if the existing
source files only exist on your local file system somewhere - that will
copy them into your Eclipse Project.
If you have an SCM system such as CVS, you can connect Eclipse to your
SCM repository/server and check out the code.
You can also created a "linked" directory in your Eclipse project that
points to the location where the source files are already, then make
that linked directory be a source location for the Eclipse Project.
Finally, you can recreate the Project and tell Eclipse to use an
already-existing location on your drive as the Project folder.
All of these are covered in the Help. I strongly recommend you go to the
Getting Started sections of Help and go through the material there. It
has lots of stuff about project configuration and organization.
