Firstly 0.28 is quite old now.  The source code distribution of 0.31
should build fine on Mandrake 9.2 (I build from CVS on there nearly
every day ;)

To test if it is working you should create a file, say, mono_test.cs:

using System;

class MyTest
     public static void Main()
        Console.WriteLine("Hello, World");

And then you can compile it with:

   mcs mono_test.cs

If you don't get any errors (it will just say "Compilation succeeded" )
you can run the compiled program with:

   mono mono_test.exe
