Okay, found the directory /usr/lib/eclipse and it has the appropriate subfolder named 'configuration' in it. However, now it says that I do have "write" permission even though I'm using a superuser account. Any assistance regarding this matter would greatly be appreciated. Also, an extended explanation of the install process would help Linux newbies to get through this process much easier in their attempts at getting away from using Windows.
Sorry...it says that I do "not" have "write" persmissions. (r-tard moment on my part)
I would imagine you need the write permission because the Flex Builder Installer has to register the plugin with eclipse. If you do not have root permission or write permission on the eclipse installation you could try to install eclipse 3.3 in your user space (like $HOME/eclipse ) and install the FB plugin in that.
I guess my problem is not understanding how I can be in the superuser account and not have "write" access.
Maybe you ran the installer without write permissions on the eclipse installation directory.
You can do that while logged in as administrator with all access?

Did you launch the installer with root permissions?
$>sudo sh install_flex_builder.bin
Sometimes even if you are root , you may not have access to the $HOME directory tree of other users. I have seen this as default behavior on SuSE.
But as root you should have write access to /usr/bin or /usr/local/eclipse
