[Mono-list] Need some help installing Mono on Redhat 2.6

Hello all,

first let me state I am a Windows guy with more-or-less zero knowledge of
Linux. My co-worker appears to know a bit more about Linux as she is using
it on a daily basis (RedHat v2.6).

I've created a c# app in VS2008 and have run it on both Microsoft and Mono
runtimes on my XP machine with no problem. I usually run it under mono by
going to the Mono command prompt and executing it from there. This works
just fine.

We've just downloaded v2.4.2.1 of Mono on my colleague's RedHat computer and
I would like to try my app on Linux. The problem is we are not sure if we
are installing it correctly. It seems like it may have installed properly (I
couldn't find an installer package like the one I used for Windows on the
Mono website so we did the download and compile approach). When I try to run
my app via:

"mono MyApp.exe AppArguments"

we get a bunch of "GDIplus.dll missing" errors. We can't effectively
diagnose what the problem is because we are unsure of whether or not we've
even installed Mono correctly. Would some kind soul post - or point me to -
step-by-step "for moron" instructions on downloading and installing mono on

Thanks very much in advance!! In the meantime I'll keep looking online for
