Insane more like - whatever possessed you to do such a thing?

Easiest way... taken from the almost infamous website which is getting
hit more than Tyson does when he lumbers into a ring...

1. Ensure you have none of the mono rpms installed. If you do, wipe em.
2. export CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous at anoncvs.go-mono.com:/mono
3. cvs -z3 co mono mcs gtk-sharp libgdiplus
4. cd mono; ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr;
5. make get-monolite-latest; make bootstrap-monolite
6. su; make install; exit
7. cd ../mcs/class/Managed.Windows.Forms; make clean; 
8. make; su; make prefix=/usr install; exit

And now you have an up to date and working install of mono. All you then
need to do to update...

1. cd mcs/class/Managed.Windows.Forms; make clean
2. cd ../System.Windows.Forms; make clean; make; su; 
3. make prefix=/usr install; exit; cd ../../..
4. (follow step 2 above)
5. cvs -z3 update mono mcs gtk-sharp libgdiplus
6. cd mono; make bootstrap; su; make install
7. Follow steps 7 and 8 above.

Simple eh!
