Ranganath,
Go to windows --> preferences in the menu. JRE should be a choice in the left list of options.

1) install the J2SE following the instructions from Sun for your platform.
2) install Eclipse following the instructions for your platform.
3) enjoy.

Either step 1 and/or 2 may require you reboot your computer.
As step 2 is simply unzipping the archive and optionally creating some desktop or startmenu shortcuts that's unlikely.

If you followed the installation instructions for the J2SE you'll have found you need to add the J2SE bin directory to your system path.
This requires on Windows 98 that you reboot your machine for the changes to take effect.
You may also (depending on Windows and J2SE version need to replace the java.exe and javaw.exe in your windows and/or windows\system directories with the ones from your J2SE installation for things to work correctly.
I think you missed that last step and/or failed to reboot your computer.

Ranganath,
Oh. Sorry I missed that. Another thing to check is that there aren't any other versions of java on your path.
