Getting packages to work with Ecilpse

I just recently downloaded the free IDE, Eclipse, and it is great and all, but i am having a lot of troble importing any packages into any of my java programs [I only am trying to use KeyboardReader, Turtle Graphics, and BreezySwing packages from this site www.wlu.edu/~lambertk/hsjava]. From what i can see my program reconizes that the packages exist because whenever i put in any of there names, they turn into a light blue. However, I think that when I put in the import statment [such as import KeyboardReader.*] Eclipe actualyl thinks the import statement is the "public class [put your own name here] { statement" folowing the import statemnt because i always get the dreaded "cannot find main" error in the JVM. The bigger reason why i think this could be true is because when i take away the impor statemtn and anything related with the import statement in the program, the program mysteriously works! if anyone can tell me in a step to step way on how to get packages to work with Eclipse, it would be greatly apprieated.

To use third-party jars in Eclipse you need to add them to the project classpath.  In the menu go to Project->Properties and in the Properties window click on "Java Build Path" then Libraries and "Add Jars".  Is that what you did?

Have you added the new jar to Eclipse?

So you did
import KeyboardReader.*;

???
It should be
import TerminalIO.KeyboardReader;

And unless you have the jars in the project directory, I think you need to do "Add External Jars" in the project properties settings.
