HI, I'm brand new to mono, and am having the following problem.

I installed the mono 2.0.1 windows release, and am trying to convert our
existing .net builds to mono. I'm having problems compiling with finding
various stock assemblies. For example 'using System' works, but 'using
System.Data' results in the error: 

error CS0234: The type or namespace name `Data' does not exist in the
namespace `System'. Are you missing an assembly reference?

In another file, they used System.Configuration, and in the spots in the
code that reference the ConfigurationManager it throws the error:

error CS0103: The name `ConfigurationManager' does not exist in the current

In both these cases I'm using the gmcs compiler.

I've tried setting MONO_PATH, and MONO_GAC_PREFIX to a variety of depths
into the mono tree to no avail. I should also probably mention I'm a build
guy, not a .NET developer so I don't know as much about how all this stuff
