The gentoo packages are pretty outdated last time I checked, if that's
still the case you should compile the latest mono package yourself.

For a book, I recommend "Inside C#" by Tom Archer, in addition to
being excellent for learning C# and .NET, it also dives a little into
MSIL so you get a better understanding of how things work under the
hood. =A0MSDN is also a great resource once you have a solid understand
of .NET's basics.

I use VS.NET for an IDE, but SharpDevelop is an good alternative and I
hear MonoDevelop (based on Sharp) is getting better.
