About Eclipse, why isn't the version with fedora good enough? Are there some bugs or problems I should know about? I am going to develop the app as a java program, to work on windows JVM, but I'm going to develop it on FC4... What version do you think I should use?
About source control, I haven't really thought about which one to use, but I think I will stick to CVS since it's most popular on the www, and since you say it fits with Eclipse...
About DBMS, as I said, I want the app to work on windows in the end, so Oracle is the DBMS I know that has both linux & SQL distributions... Are there any others that are good enough? I won't be needing any complex features, just normal SQL queries...

Eclipse is a butt-kicking development environment. I would not use the
version that comes with Fedora, though. I want more control over my
development environment so I usually install it separately. I also install
Java separately and then control it with environmental variables.

I agree with Sean here. PostgreSQL or MySQL will be quite a bit less
complicated to set up and administer than Oracle. And, if you stick to
mostly "standard" SQL, your applications will be fairly transferable between

Critical piece of advice here. Be sure that you pick a good one (Eclipse
works with CVS "out of the box"). Quite often people discount the source
control system. Where I work, we have over 750Mg of source code under CVS.
