[Mono-list] Learning mono...chapter 3

I've used your program Salvatore and I have the following comments
1.  The program name (first field on the first step) , won't let you
have spaces etc (looks like it's used for the file name or something).
 This wasn't clear and so it wasn't working for me, so I ran it from
the command line and saw the error output that helped me come to this
conclusion.  Perhaps better validation is in order?
1.  Selecting where to put the deb would be nice.  It's not obvious
that I should look in my home folder.
2.  The writing on the top should say "steps" not "step" (I know that
is nitpicky)
3.  In a future version it would be cool if you could simplify the
application requirement step since I have no idea what to put there as
I don't know how to create debs (I figure you kind of want this for
people who don't need to know that).

I know you said it basically your program to learn mono so my comments
are probably pretty dumb but I know I will want feedback on my
application so I hoped it would be helpful.
