  Well... if you had a Debian-based system you could just do
  apt-get install mono
  or you could choose mono from the GUI front-end synaptic and click 
  on "apply".

I generally avoid using a --force flag.  I would recommend that you type:

rpm --install *

AFAIK rpm will figure out the order on its own.

Since you have Mandrake, you could try using urpmi, which tries to bring 
some apt-get-ness into Mandrake.  I don't know how to use it though.
