What is the error message?
What OS?
I would look on the eclipse web site, in the mail and newsgroup archives, for the error message to see if anybody else has had the same error message and what they did to solve the problem

Setting the java VM using -vm

It is recommended that you explicitly specify which Java VM to use when running Eclipse. This is achieved with the -vm command line argument (for example, -vm c:\jre\bin\javaw.exe). If you don't use -vm, Eclipse will use the first Java VM found on the O/S path. When you install other products, they may change your path, resulting in a different Java VM being used when you next launch Eclipse.

I tried something like this because my jvm is on c:\program files :

eclipse.exe -vm c:\progra~1\java\j2re1.4.2_01\javaw.exe

It showed a splash screen then it gave an error again like :

/----------------------------------------------------------------

 JVM Terminated. Exit Code=1
 c:\progra~1\java\j2re1.4.2_01\javaw.exe

 -cp c:\Michael\eclipse
 -os win32
 -ws win32

---------------------------------------------------------------/

Also tried this :
eclipse.exe -vm c:\javac\bin\javaw.exe

But produces same error
Anyone pls. help . . .

Ok, you're headed in the right direction.
Is the command you are executing (eclipse.exe -vm c:\progra~1\java\j2re1.4.2_01\javaw.exe)
being done from the Start menu or from the command line?
If it is not from the command line, you should try it because there may be more error info in the console.

Also, look in the directory where you installed Eclipse and look for a file called hs_err_pid********** (where ********** are digits).  That file may contain error information.
