Has anyone experience running Eclipse on Linux?

I am running Red Hat Linux v.8, with Sun's JDK 1.4 installed, and can't
get Eclipse to run. After extracting the files into my usr/share/eclipse
directory running

/eclipse

from the command line generates a ClassNotFoundException after echoing the
following line:

usr/share/eclipse///startup/jar

It seems to me that the eclipse binary is trying to open startup.jar, but
is not referencing it correctly, thus generating the error.

This is a question belonging in the tools-group, but anyway...start
eclipse from usr/share/eclipse like this:
../eclipse -data ~/workspace

Stein,

Thanks. Sorry for the misplaced question, but I wasn't sure which forum
was appropriate.
