Yes, that's correct. Sorry, should have mentioned that the Drools runtime is NOT an update site, nor is it a collection of Eclipse plugins/features -- it's the layer BELOW that. 

So, yes, to "install" it you just unpack it somewhere and then configure the Drools IDE plugins installed into Eclipse (from their update site / zip) to tell it where you put the runtime.

It's akin to telling Eclipse where your Java runtime (JDK or JRE) is installed, if you have more than one (1.4, 5.0, 6.0).

So, as you surmised, the process in general for Eclipse install/config is:

0. install Java
1. get Eclipse, unpack
2. run Eclipse, install into it using Update (remote sites, local sites, local site zips)
3. get additional runtime(s) and unpack them outside Eclipse install folder
4. configure Eclipse to know where runtime(s) are located

Should you want to do the above for Seam, Hibernate, etc. that's the process. :)
