Thanks for your response.  Unfortunately, there is no c# version of 
The core team has talked about porting it, there's even a csharpNuke.com
website.  However, no c# version has yet been made available and various posts
on the DotNetNuke forum leads me to believe it will be some time (if ever)
before a c# port is done.

I was hoping maybe someone else has tried to run DNN on Mono.  I'ts a very
capable and easy to use portal framework which I'm already familiar with.
Theoretically, it should run on Mono, even though it's written in VB (isn't
this true?) because the application is compiled to IL.  So Mono shouldn't need
to compile any VB, just compile or interpret the IL.

Anybody done this?
