[Mono-list] ASP (Visual Basic); vbnc vs mbas; was C++/CLI

Hi all,

I have read that to get a Visual Basic ASP site working with mono on 
linux, I need to install mbas, the mono visual basic compiler.

The mono visual basic compiler that I have managed to install is called 
"vbnc".  Are vbnc and mbas the same thing, and if not, which one do I need?

On the off-chance that it would work, I tried
   ln vbnc mbas
in the folder where vbnc is installed.

Now my aspx page displays the following message:
File not found: <random_name>.dll

Where <random_name> changes each time I refresh the page.

On a probably unrelated issue,

Thanks.  I seem to have progressed to the next problem now.
