Subject: Reminders with alarms

Hi there,

I'm just starting to explore orgmode.  I'm an experienced GTD-er (6
yrs) and have looked with interest at a few articles on using orgmode
for this.  The one area I can't seem to work out is how to set a
reminder with an alarm and attach it to an entry.

Suppose I have an entry like:

** My project
*** My action 1 :home:
*** My action 2 :follow up:

I would like to be able to set a reminder that makes a visible (and
maybe audible) alert - in say 4 hrs, 2 days, at 1530 next wednesday
etc.  I see that I can set schedules for when to start work, but I've
been unable to get it to remind me at all.

Any suggestions?
