I tried running the beta under Windows, but mcs throws an exception and
then hangs:

C:\Documents and Settings\bjepson>mcs foo.cs

  ** (C:\Program Files\Mono-Beta1\lib\mono\1.0\mcs.exe:1968): WARNING
  **: Could not find assembly System, references from C:\Program
  Files\Mono-Beta1\lib\mono\1.0\mcs.exe (assemblyref_index=1)
     Major/Minor: 1,0
     Build:       5000,0
     Token:       b77a5c561934e089

  Unhandled Exception: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not
  set to an instance of an object

I put quotes around all the paths in \windows\monobasepath.bat, ran mcs,
and got this error instead:

  C:\Documents and Settings\bjepson>mcs
  The assembly mscorlib.dll was not found or could not be loaded.
  It should have been installed in the `c:/mono/mb/install/lib' directory.
