How to load existing project in eclipse 3.2?

I have an existing project with source folder and classes folder. I did create the project in eclipse and loaded the entire folder. The way I did was:
1. File ---> New -----> Project

Sorry for the half-way post above. Here I continue...

Then I did:

General ---> Project

I gave the folder name which was in C Drive (C:/SampleProject) and it took the default location as the same folder name (C:/SampleProject).

The question I have is:
How do I assign the source and classes folder in eclipse? For example: my directory structure looks like:

C:/SampleProject/src/...
C:/SampleProject/classes/..

Thanks for any help.

HI,
I guess from File-New-Project. You select the Java Project then New Java Project dialog box appear. Just follow the wizard.
To make the src and classes folder, in the New Java Project box,there is a portion title "Project Layout", select create separate source and output folders..you can the configure default on the portion.select that another dialog box will appear...You select folders. for the source folder name : src . Output folder name: classes. then click ok.

Hope this will help you. Sorry if I mess up the things..because first time posting a reply

Also, Eclipse is pretty good at figuring out what folders are Java source folders even if you don't tell it.

You can change the source and output folders at any time by selecting the Java Build options on the project Properties dialog.
