Click on Windows->Preferences->Java->Installed JREs->Add
Select the Java JRE you want and click Apply
Hope this helps,

Actually, Eclipse comes with its own compiler. It is not possible to replace it by a different one (other than using Ant for compilation purposes). Only that way the incremental compilation could be implemented.

So, can I select the build version in the preference->java->compiler->compliance and ClassFiles?
Do you mean I can choose JDK if I use ant to compile the classes?

Is anyone aware of the schedule for including Java 1.5 (tiger) support in Eclipse?

Version 3.0 should support it as much as possible.

Most probably - see http://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/development/eclipse_project_plan_3_0.html#JDT
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
