I can vouch for this.  At work we wrote a web service in VS 2003 
(ASP.NET 1.1) and it runs flawlessly using Mono on Linux.  It was a 
pretty simple web service: 1 .asmx file with a few supporting .cs files.

Any book, tutorial, etc. on web services in .NET 1.1 should work 
identically using Mono and Linux.

 From Microsoft:

The .PDB extension stands for "program database." It holds the new 
format for storing debugging information that was introduced in Visual 
C++ version 1.0. In the future, the .PDB file will also hold other 
project state information. One of the most important motivations for the 
change in format was to allow incremental linking of debug versions of 
programs, a change first introduced in Visual C++ version 2.0.
