eclipse sdk

I am starting to use eclipse ide for developing android apps for my samsun tab.


I downloaded and installed eclipse and it seems to work ok


When I go down to pulldown window and choose sdk manager it says "sdk manager will show up shortly" but nothing ever does....


all info I found on web seems to be for way old versions of this stuff....


I downloiaded the eclipse bundle from eclipse.org and have the eclipse ide running but dont understand the significance of android sdk manager?? how are these to work together? what other (packages?) do I need to install, what is relation between sdk mgr and eclipse, basic questions like that, thanks
