the monkey guide is what you need. Right now it's been taken offline 
for maintenance.  What OS do you use ?

If you use Windows, you can follow 
http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/hellomono.asp . I am not sure the 
installation part is up to date as we fixed a lot of ENV variable type 
issues recently. If you use Linux, what distro do you use ?
