|Getting started is like pulling teeth (and install is worse)... [message #663815]

I am new to all of this Eclipse shebang but I must say that it is looking like it has been designed with being cryptic as a core feature!!!
I wanted to learn a few things, like Java and UML and started with installing "Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers", I have version Helios SR2-20110218-0911. I am on a 64bits Windows 7 machine.
I did a bit of Java... Fine and enough to nunderstand that any class beyond schoolboy level would require a bit of design.
I am now trying to get all of this UML stuff off the ground and I must say it much much more painfull.
I first installed the UML2 packages using Help->Install new software, then choosing UML2 from the modeling group.
My installed software shows the following:
UML2 Documentation 3.1.0.v201005281015 org.eclipse.uml2.doc.feature.group
UML2 End-User Features 3.1.2.v201010261927 org.eclipse.uml2.feature.group
UML2 Examples 3.1.1.v201008191505 org.eclipse.uml2.examples.feature.group
UML2 Examples Source 3.1.1.v201008191505 org.eclipse.uml2.examples.source.feature.group
UML2 Extender SDK 3.1.2.v201010261927 org.eclipse.uml2.sdk.feature.group
UML2 Source 3.1.2.v201010261927 org.eclipse.uml2.source.feature.group
I am now able to create UML files, but "the hard way" and started looking for a GUI tool, here come Papyrus and the begining of my woes...
I tried to follow the steps here, and added http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/papyrus/updates/rel eases/helios as an update site.
I first tried to install all Papyrus packages, but I ran into dependancy issues.
Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
Software being installed: MDT Papyrus - Backbone (Incubation) 0.7.2.v201101191114 (org.eclipse.papyrus.backbone.feature.group 0.7.2.v201101191114)
Missing requirement for filter properties ~= $0: EPF Richtext 188.8.131.52101131810 (org.eclipse.epf.richtext.feature.group 184.108.40.206101131810) requires 'org.eclipse.epf.common.win32.win32.x86 [220.127.116.11101131810]' but it could not be found
Cannot satisfy dependency:
From: MDT Papyrus - Backbone (Incubation) 0.7.2.v201101191114 (org.eclipse.papyrus.backbone.feature.group 0.7.2.v201101191114)
To: org.eclipse.epf.richtext.feature.group [18.104.22.168101131810]
I finally was able to install the "Papyrus UML" package, and my installed software now show:
MDT Papyrus - Activity Diagram editor (Incubation) 0.7.2.v201101191114 org.eclipse.papyrus.diagram.activity.feature.group
MDT Papyrus - Class Diagram editor (Incubation) 0.7.2.v201101191114 org.eclipse.papyrus.diagram.clazz.feature.group
MDT Papyrus - Communication Diagram editor (Incubation) 0.7.2.v201101191114 org.eclipse.papyrus.diagram.communication.feature.group
MDT Papyrus - Composite Diagram editor (Incubation) 0.7.2.v201101191114 org.eclipse.papyrus.diagram.composite.feature.group
MDT Papyrus - Direct editors for UML using XText (Incubation) 0.7.2.v201101191114 org.eclipse.papyrus.xtext.uml.feature.group

MDT Papyrus - Sequence Diagram editor (Incubation) 0.7.2.v201101191114 org.eclipse.papyrus.diagram.sequence.feature.group
MDT Papyrus - StateMachine Diagram editor (Incubation) 0.7.2.v201101191114 org.eclipse.papyrus.diagram.statemachine.feature.group
MDT Papyrus - UML core elements (Incubation) 0.7.2.v201101191114 org.eclipse.papyrus.uml.feature.group
MDT Papyrus - UseCase Diagram editor (Incubation) 0.7.2.v201101191114 org.eclipse.papyrus.diagram.usecase.feature.group
My issue is that my Eclipse environment did not change at all and I have yet to see any button, menu or icon related to Papyrus or editing UML diagrams.
I assume I am missing somlethjing simple and fairly basic here, but I have been pulling my hair on this all day and I could really use some help.
If you have any pointers on a "getting started" guide, I am more than happy to get it.
Many thanks in advance for your help (and forgive my English, I am French, hope this is not why Papyrus is broken ).
