Make a link:

ln -s /home/myname/eclipse/eclipse /usr/bin/eclipse

i tried to link it.. then i got the error below..

The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its
companion startup.jar file (in the same directory as the executable).

then i moved the eclipse directory to the /usr/bin directory but now i get error saying that
#usr/bin/eclipse

is a directory....

the reason why i get the first error is that eclipse needs the startup.jar file that its talking about..
anymore ideas.....

nobody told you to move the eclipse directory into /usr/bin

the most relevant suggestion to something like that you got wat to create a symbolic link to the executable file in /usr/bin

as to the error that it is a directory, look inside the directory for the executable file.
