Hi - I want usera to see his/her projects, and not those of userb (and vice-versa).
And I'd like to do this with a single instaled image of Eclips.
I've been thinking environment variables or eclipse command line options, but am not finding anything (docs) to indicate I can do this.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Regards, Guy

It sounds like you want to give each user his/her own workspace.
For Eclipse 2.0, this is described in Help / Workbench User Guide / Tasks / Running Eclipse.
Briefly, you us the -data command-line option to specify the location of the workspace.
(Also, having the workspace not be in the Eclipse program directory may make it easier to do version upgrades even if you cannot get the upgrade feature to work from behind your firewall.)

Ilja provide a link to the item on the web site.
Alternatively, in case you want to become familiar with the Eclipse help:
Open Eclipse.
Select the Help menu, and its Help Contents submenu. The help window should open (perhaps after a delay).
In the Contents panel on the left, select Workbench User Guide. Expand Tasks, then select Running Eclipse.
Or, once you get the Help window, you can search for "running eclipse" or "command line".
