1) Download, uncompress, and run the latest stable Eclipse.
2) Click Help->Cheet Sheets...
3) Choose "Plugin Development"->"Create an Eclipse Plugin using PDE".
4) Follow the tutorial

In addition you will want to read these articles:
http://www.eclipse.org/articles/

If you want more detail there are numerous books on Eclipse plugin
development as well as a very active developer mailing lists.
