Eclispe Failing to Launch

I have Eclipse running using several plugins. I'm using version 3.2M3-win32. I downloaded Hibernate Synchronizer plugin using the update manager. When I restart Eclipse I get the Eclipse Splash screen. However something happens, and then I get a Dialog box telling something is wrong with the configuration. I have remove the two directories downloaded with Hibernate Synchronizer and re-ran the command eclipse -clean from the command line, but I still am getting the same error. When I go check the log file within the configuration directory I see the following:

........ The log file continues with a list of all plugins I have saying it could not resolve any of them.

Can someone please guide me in the steps I need to take to fix this problem?

Thank you for reading my post. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

For the good of the group:

The problem I was having involving this error:

> !ENTRY org.eclipse.update.configurator 2005-12-01 06:35:54.421
> !MESSAGE Could not install bundle plugins/org.eclipse.emf.common_2.1.0.jar
> Bundle "org.eclipse.emf.common" version "2.1.0" has already been installed
> from: update@plugins/org.eclipse.emf.common_2.1.0/
was related to the fact I had 3rd party jars inside the eclipse plugin
directory and also in the 3rd party directory. When I removed the jar file
from the eclipse/plugin direct and allowed Eclipse to locate the jar file
from within the 3rd party directory--eclipse/plugins/<3rdpartydirectory>
this error went away!
