Exactly the same as you would do for Microsoft .NET. Our libraries and 
should be compatible.

You probably forget to pass -langversion:linq option This option is only 
temporary (to disable not
very stable features) and will very likely be removed in the next Mono 

I also recommend you to use SVN HEAD version as LINQ is under 
development and SVN
contains more features than Mono 1.2.5.* release.
