VB 2008 should produce "managed code" which is a set of .exe´s and .dll´s,
all of them compatible with mono in linux. No need for VMware or Wine.

(unless you use something very specific to windows, such as an "unmanaged"
third-party dll).

To run your app in Ubuntu you need all the same libraries that your project
uses in windows; most of mono´s libraries can be found with Synaptics (or
"Add/Remove programs" in Ubuntu), just search for mono and look for the
libraries you want.

the next thing as Chris said, would be the right-clicking or doing "mono
path/to/your/app.exe" in a terminal....

If you have trouble with the needed libraries, I would suggest downloading
the latest binary installer (for "other linux") in mono´s site. It usually
works better than the mono version which is shipped by default with some
Ubuntu versions...

greetings and good luck

PS: your english looks kind of OK :-P
