VB.NET support is being worked on in the "mbas" compiler.  However, it
hasn't been distributed in any of the RPMs to date (despite it being
documented as such, and intending too...).  With luck it'll make it into
the next release (0.20), which is due Real Soon Now (TM).  How soon? 
When the regressions are fixed...  (As seen on #mono!)

If you don't want to wait that long, the only alternative is to grab the
"mcs" module from CVS.  The mbas compiler is in the mbas directory.

Unfortunately, building CVS can be a "enlightening experience" (see
README.building; enlightenment comes when you say "so *that's* what I
need to do!"), so it's probably easier to just wait for the next
