Eclipse for Linux

I want to install Eclipse (Java IDE tools) on Red Hat 9. I found that there are two version of Eclipse for Linux:
Linux (x86/Motif) and Linux (x86/GTK 2).

Which one should I download? I read in their website that both x86/Motif and x86/GTK 2 could be installed on Red Hat 8 but for GTK 2 it require GTK 2.2 for DBCS. They don't mention anything about Red Hat 9. Anyone here could suggest me? Thanks.

It don't matter you can use either of those and it won't make a difference if you have GTK2.2 installed in Red Hat. All GTK is is a program that they use for the GUI interface of the machine. If you don't have GTK2.2 installed you can go with the other one to save you the trouble of installing it if you don't need to.

is GTK 2.2 included by default in RedHat 9 installation? If it is not, how could I know whether it is installed on my machine or not? Thanks.
