Charlottesville Jeepers? I need help fixing my xj!

I'm a college student at the University of Virginia. I am trying to fix my XJ. She'll crank and run with starting fluid when I've got her hooked to anther battery, but that's about it. After a little while, it doesn't even crank. :'(

I'm a college student: can't afford a mechanic, and I'd rather learn to do it myself. If anyone can come down to UVa and help, I'll make it worth your while.

I think it's the fuel pump since it runs with starter fluid, but I'm not sure why the battery dies so quickly, so it could be electrical.
