[Mono-dev] Verifying XML Sign

Trying to understand....maybe I found my problem.
I develop using vs2003 and framework 1.1 so X509Certificate2 doesn't exists.
I have a look at the testcase, it says that "MS doesn't extract the 
public key out of the certificates ..." referring to the same MSDN 
article I was talking, so it creates a 
Mono.Security.X509.X509Certificate using rawdata from a 
System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate and 
than it CheckSignature on that object.
I'm wrong if I say that I cannot use namespaces from m$ 1.1 framework 
to verify with certificates and to make it work in linux/mono? I've 
to use 2.0 objects or mono objects right?
Thanks for helping
