What do the various fields on the New Android Project window in Eclipse mean?

Project name:
The name of the folder where your project will be created.

Build Target:
You want to choose as low of a version as possible unless you absolutely need to use something in a later API.

Application name:
This is the human-readable title for your application — the name that will appear on the Android device.

Package name:
This is the package namespace (following the same rules as for packages in the Java programming language) where all your source code will reside.

Create Activity:
This is the name of the first Activity that will be generated in the src folder.

Min SDK Version:
This is an integer that indicates the minimum API Level required to properly run your application:

Platform Version API Level
Android 2.2 8
Android 2.1 7
Android 2.0.1 6
Android 2.0 5
Android 1.6 4
Android 1.5 3
Android 1.1 2

"Create Activity:

I still don't know what an activity is. It's got something to do with the src folder?

An activity is the file that holds the code... if you're a Windows developer, you could think of it as being similar to a Form.
