Download it and start using it. It comes with tutorials and help files, and its just an IDE, so you should be able to work out most of what it can do just by playing with it.

You're not alone. I felt the same frustration. Almost all the doc and discussion on the Eclipse site is about how to extend it. The latest help is better, and just the discussions about what's new in the latest release will tell you a lot of usability stuff. Best of luck ... think about writing Eclipse for Dummies when you get it down.

1. I find the document which comes with Eclipse quite usefull.
2. There are excelent books for using Eclipse. For example you got free may version of Bill Dudneys Eclipse book on sourcebeat through free registration on javalobby.com. This book has excelent explanations/hands on stuff about the basics and a bit more advanced things like eclipse and ant, eclipse and cvs, eclipse and junit and refactorings in eclipse.
Unfortunatedly when I tried with a collegue, monday, the period to get Eclipse Live through Javalobby was long over.
I am going to subscribe to it. Costs only 29 dollar or so and Bill is good author.
