this article talks about the requirements (look at the Setting up the Development Environment section):
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms564508.aspx

"The supported approach for setting up your Web Part development environment is to develop locally on an Office SharePoint Server 2007 server."

so you'll need to figure out a way to have sharepoint installed.  one method is to remote to the sharepoint server.  or install sharepoint on a VM.

see here for instructions + an example using Visual Studio:
