[Mono-aspnet-list] fastcgi-mono-server on different machine

When running a FastCGI server on another machine, problems most likely 
occur because of different directory layout.

For maximal compatibility you should place your content on your 
application server (server B) to exactly the same location as it would 
be on the web server (server A).

This seems to be /home2/user/www/user.net/htdocs on server A
while seems to be /home/user/www on server B that are obviously different.

Note that however different paths on the two servers could be supported 
by fastcgi-mono-server but I don't know how much infrastructure for that 
is currently implemented. (It may be as easy as mapping paths rather 
than relaying on SCRIPT_FILENAME for example.)

As a first step I would recommend you to make this setup work with 
exatly the same paths then you can try to move the files on the 
application server to a different location.
