Yeah, you have to setup the project to be part of the "team sharing"
thingy.  That'll be the place where you setup your access to CVS, or in
my case VSS.  At least with the VSS plugin it'll map locations far down
the tree to be the "root" of the project, and thusly everything stays
happy.  There's a mapping wizard that'll pop up.  It probably does that
for CVS as well as VSS, but I haven't played with the CVS side of it.

I will have to check it out, especially to see how it creates its -own- 
directory structure in the face of Eclipse's preferred way of doing 
things (because not all of my development is on Tomcat apps, and it 
would be cool to use Eclipse for these too).

I'm not sure I understand -- do you have to register your source control

system with Eclipse to do this?  My source control system (CVS) is on a 
remote server, and I have to ssh into the machine and checkout the tree,

then download it to my local machine, because my source code repository 
is not in the "master" location where CVS will serve it directly to CVS 
clients.  :(

Thanks for your input Mike.
