I have specific question related to installing MacTex.

Since i am using a .edu domain shared disk space i cannot install the 
software with admin privileges. Can i install it in my user space?

More specifically i want the latex binaries to be invoked command line- 
just as in any unix/linux installation. I want to send the path of the 
installed binaries to the Eclipse application which can then invoke the 
latex commands using the TexClipse plugin.

here are my machine details just in case....

Any pointers will be very helpful...
