iFilters need only to be installed on the indexing server(s). However,
you may have some additional desirable configuration required on other
servers, such as PDF icon, etc.

I recently found that PDF files could not be found on teamsites (WSS2).
Teamsites search  use the SQL server  Full text search to find data.
If you have a separate front end and database server, then you'll have
to install the PDF IFilter on the database server as well and do some
extra configuration. See microsoft KB article on
