Go to www.eclipse.org, download the Linux/GTK2 bundle, unzip the distribution file using "unzip", cd into the just-created "eclipse" directory and run "./eclipse". That's it.

Well actually, I'm pretty sure you'll also need a JDK and a JAVA_HOME to find it with. My ~/.bash_profile is supplied with

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_06
export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH

as well as defining ANT_HOME and its path, since I have a rule that all my projects be command-line buildable whether there's an IDE available or not.
