for working on the class libraries, you basically need access to windows so
you can run microsoft's SDK, since our compiler and runtime is incomplete.

(the runtime can run small programs, but the compiler doesn't do much other
than parsing c sharp code AFAIK)

once you get a dev environment, you can help by picking a class someone isn't
working on (check the class status pages to be sure), and writing it.  mail it
to the list when you're done ;-)

alternatively, we could always use more unit tests.  check out NUnit
(nunit.sourceforge.net) and find some classes that don't have tests if you're
interested in that.
