Eclipse installation problem

I try to start Eclipse installation:
eclipse -data /home/mario/Documents/Eclipse/ -vm /usr/java/j2re1_4_0/bin/

and I got a message that it can't find the startup.jar although it is present int -data directory
I use Mandrake 9.0

Ugly solution, but it works: cd to the directory where you have eclipse installed, then to its jre subdir. Symlink the bin dir from your jre:
# cd /usr/local/eclipse/jre
# ln -s /usr/java/j2re1_4_0/bin .

Substitute /usr/local/eclipse with your path to the eclipse installation directory.

Still got a message that sartup.jar isn*t in the same directory as a executable file.
And if I start eclipse with the click I got a message:
JVM Terminated. Exit code = 9
-cp /home/mario/Documents/eclipse/startup.jar
-os linux
-ws motif
-arch x86
-slowsplash /home/mario/Documents/eclipse
eclipse -showsplash 600
