I ll install Eclipse , go to
You will see a page like this.

Then click on link for " Eclipse classic 4.2".  I think I better install 64 bit version since my computer's operating system is 64 bit.

Once  I click on "Windows 64 bit" for the classic version, I m directed to a mirror selection page.I select the first section.
Once I click on big green download sign, I m prompted to select a download location.
It is a large file ( 183MB ). So it will take a while to download.Once downloaded , it is shown as below in Firefox downloads dialog.
Once I open down load folder there is a folder called Eclipse. Once it is opened, there is an Application called " Eclipse"Then  I run it.

Then I extract it. First problem :(

Google d the error. Found the reason could be my JDK installation being 64 bit. So, I m going to do it next. Uninstalling JDK and reinstalling it. says JRE alone is not sufficient I need to install full JDK 6 (64 bit).
