If you want to install the SDK, you’ll need a dual core 2 GHz CPU, with 2 GB of RAM running the 32-bit version of Ubuntu (10.04 or greater) or the 32-bit version of Windows XP SP3/Windows 7.  Tizen SDK makes use of Oracle Java v6 or higher version and several packages: qemu-kvm, binutils-multiarch, debhelper, fakeroot, realpath, gettext, procps, xsltproc, libdbus-1-3, liblua5.1-0, libexif12, and libcurl3.

You can download the SDK for your operating system below.

Ubuntu 32-bit tizen_sdk.bin 4.5 MB April 30, 2012
Windows 32-bit tizen_sdk.exe 5.1 MB April 30, 2012

The installation is straightforward (especially in Windows), but if you run into problems, you can also check the instructions to install the SDK on Ubuntu or install the SDK on Windows.
