Force IDE 'partial' install?

When I add software, it connects through my prxy, installs a bunch of components, but the cannot complete:


Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
  Software being installed: Force.com IDE (com.salesforce.ide.feature.feature.group
  Missing requirement: Common Frameworks 1.1.300.v200904160730 (org.eclipse.wst.common.frameworks 1.1.300.v200904160730) requires 'bundle org.eclipse.emf.ecore [2.4.0,3.0.0)' but it could not be found
  Cannot satisfy dependency:
    From: Force.com IDE (com.salesforce.ide.feature.feature.group
    To: org.eclipse.wst.validation 0.0.0
  Cannot satisfy dependency:
    From: Validation Framework 1.2.104.v200911120201 (org.eclipse.wst.validation 1.2.104.v200911120201)
    To: bundle org.eclipse.wst.common.frameworks [1.1.200,2.0.0)


I find that the best method is to install Eclipse/Helios apart from the Force.com IDE, generally more reliable than the one-shot install from Salesforce.  This way you know that Eclipse has everything it needs before you move on. Then run the Eclipse and install with the the Help > Install New Software feature in the menus.
