Following instructions here:

At File -> Import, I have General, CVS, Mylyn, and Team. I do not have Run/Debug.

    Which version of Eclipse are you using?
    In my Eclipse Helios (Eclipse version 3.6 SR2) I can see that option when I choose File -> Import

    Eclipse Platform
    Version: 3.3.2
    Build id: M200880221-1800

    This has been installed on my new computer. I can see the Run/Debug on the eclipse on my old computer. I can't figure out what makes it appear.

    The version of Eclipse is apparently the problem, I still had the installation file for Eclipse Europa (version 3.3.x) so I installed and started it and then when I checked what was available in the menu File -> Import... I got exactly what you first described (General, CVS, Mylyn, and Team).  

    Checking online Eclipse Documentation, I could see that this feature is available starting the next version of Eclipse (Ganymede, version 3.4) though I would really recommend upgrading to the latest Eclipse version (Indigo, version 3.7.x).

    I installed Indigo 3.7 and that does indeed not have the problem.
