There are 2 components to the SharePoint Reminder application - the Web Part and the Reminder Service & Configuration Tool.
Both should be installed on the SharePoint Web Server using the supplied installation package which you can download here
To ensure that the Installer can complete correctly it should be run from a user account that is at a minimum a member of the Local Administrators group and has administration permissions for SharePoint.
If you have a separate SQL Server database then the user account you use must be a domain account that also has sufficient permissions on your database to perform SharePoint administration tasks (STSADM).
If you are using a single front end web server (either with MSDE or SQL Server databases on the same or separate servers) then both components should be installed on this front end web server.
If you are using multiple front end web servers then the Reminder Service & Configuration Tool should be installed on only one front end web server whilst the Web Part will be automatically deployed to all Web Front End (WFE) servers
Once you have installed the Reminder Service you may have to perform some additional configuration as detailed here.
