Actually, you can compile from source.
They should get a copy of the latest version from cvs
(http://go-mono.com/daily), or the latest release (0.25), and extract
the files from the tarball. They can then execute:
Where /path/to/prefix is a directory where they can write to. Folders
such as bin/ and lib/ will be made, they have the traditional functions.
They must then set MONO_PATH to lib/, and make sure bin/ is in their
path. They should then be all set.
It may be easier, however, for your users to ask a system administrator
to install the latest RPM. If they use Red Carpet, this would be as
rug in mono
Otherwise, they can download the latest release and install the RPM.
If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask. I am glad to
hear you are looking into deploying Mono.
