Updated PTP help - please review

Beth Tibbitts-2
I have checked in updates to most all of the help files.
Most all the screenshots are now of Linux (not windows!)
I left the Mac screenshots for much of the debug and perspectives help.
There are a few gifs from windows but they are mostly in the details,
not the whole perspective, so they may be ok, and not too obtrusive/misleading. :-)

The most changes are in the files for launching, and preferences.
Nathan, I made up some info about the developer mode and Viewer preferences,
so please have a look.  I added more description and clarification in many places.
I didn't change much in the description of the debug perspective - that was reasonably
detailed already, but someday I'll add more words describing what is done in pictures now.
I don't *think* alot of function has changed there; please correct me if I'm wrong.

Under "Launching parallel programs the old way" (02pLaunchOld.html)
it turns out we had two descriptions in different places, using cdt launcher, and external programs.
Are they both valid?  I put them both here together, and just linked them from the 'how to launch'
page, so they aren't prominent.

Let me know if any of my examples are too lame.
I'm only running on one machine, obviously, so only one icon in runtime perspective,
but i left several of those with the Mac screenshots.

PLEASE review this, guys, I'd really like to have it be right for the 1.0 final.
I checked it in against HEAD, Greg, sorry, forgot to do it against RC4, but since
it's only in the org.eclipse.ptp.help plugin, perhaps that's not too bad.

You can review this in your own workbench, or perhaps easier
in the copy that's posted on the website, under 'documentation'
but linked directly here:

Beth,

I updated the preferences help page slightly. Take a look.

On the prerequisites page, I think we should specify Eclipse 3.1.1  
and CDT 3.0.2, and Open MPI 1.0.2 (and above).

I also think we should drop the 'old way to launch parallel programs'  
stuff. I put this in the tutorial, but I doubt there is anyone that  
use Eclipse for parallel programs before PTP.

'The New Way: Launching Parallel Programs' could then become just  
'Launching Parallel Programs'.

In the PTP Debug Perspective, I would also drop the 'Putting it all  
together' section.

We'll need to merge this with the 1.0 branch before we do the release.

Thanks for putting this together!

Greg
