Problems installing Apex Toolkit for Eclipse

I am getting the following error when trying to install the Apex Toolkit for Eclipse.
 
Code:
Network connection problems encountered during search.
  Unable to access "http://adnsandbox.com/appexchange/e3.2s".
    Error parsing site stream. [Premature end of file.]

I have a fresh install of Eclipse 3.3.0
Windows XP Professional SP2
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_03-b07)

UPDATE
 
I was able to get it to install, but now when I try to open an scf file I get an "Error opening the editor" message. I have given the stacktrace below.

Thanks for posting, Clinton.

I'm also getting "Error opening the editor" messages when I try to create a new Apex Control or open an existing one.  I can create and connect to Apex projects without trouble though.

I'm using Eclipse Europa Version: 3.3.0, Build id: I20070625-1500 and Apex Eclipse Toolkit 8.0.2002
Is the Apex Toolkit compatible with Eclipse 3.3?  The log indicates a possible problem in plugin.xml...

From the error log:!ENTRY org.eclipse.ui 4 0 2007-07-13 11:56:14.993
!MESSAGE Unable to create editor ID com.appexchange.plugin.editors.SControlEditor: The editor class could not be instantiated. This usually indicates that the editor's class name was mistyped in plugin.xml.
!STACK 0

You need 3.2.2, see the install docs on the wiki
RKRK
3.2.2 can be found here:
http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/R-3.2.2-200702121330/download.php?dropFile=eclipse-SDK-3.2.2-win32.zip

I had some problems getting the Apex plugin to load (kept getting install failed messages) until I patched 3.2.2.

Once I did that, all worked A-OK.
