How to install Eclipse MarketPlace on Eclipse Helios

In my last post, I shared the workaround of adding Force.com plugin to work with Eclipse latest edition called Eclipse Juno 4.2. I learned Eclipse for some reason kept on forgetting security token, username and password and pops window everytime you open any file. After posting on the forum for Eclipse development, we concluded that problem actually stays in is force.com plugin not the Eclipse IDE itself and Eclipse have no control over it

Eclipse Juno offer Eclipse MarketPlace, I thought this would great idea if we can have Eclipse MarketPlace on old editions. Please follow the steps below to configure market place in side Helios and Indigo
