I agree with Jeremiah.

I use to write the source code with vi and to compile it with
NAnt from the command line (ev. see developer.agamura.com/technotes
for a tutorial). I think that's the best. Of course, if you prefer,
you could use make instead of NAnt...

> 	Hello List,
> 	I hope this is the right place to ask my questions!
> 	If not, please let me know on where to go.

> 	I have to admit, that I am a beginner with linux also.

> 	- mono-devel-0.28-1.ximian.7.1.i586.rpm
> 	I am now ready to start....but how?

> 	So here are my "beginners" questions:
> 	- Which IDE should I use?
> 	- How can I get it installed and working?
> 	- Is there a graphical Development Enviroment at all?
> 	- How can I get the mono debugger to work?
> 	  I tried to build it on my machine, but I can't get beyond "configure".

> 	- What is jay, and what do I have to do to get it working on my machine?
> 	May be there is a paper out there in the www that some one has written
