[Mono-dev] OpenDental running on Linux

You'll need Mono 1.2.3 and most likely Mono from SVN. Try to get
yourself familiar with building mono from SVN on your Linux computer.

I would advise against prj2make. Try NAnt instead. It has the benefit of
helping cross-platform build: you can use the same build script on both
Linux and Windows. That's a huge advantage.
