While ASP.NET 2.0 features are still under development, I don't think 
you should have any problem with the basic controls and FirebirdSQL 
access.  Use the latest beta version of Mono as its ASP.NET 2.0 handling 
is much better than the stable version.

Also, note that the App_Code directory is not automatically compiled 
AFAIK, and Mono does not automatically detect file changes like 
Microsoft's implementation.

Just post any specific problems you run into to this list.
