The version numbers for Mono and .NET do not align because there are
major portions of .NET that are less important to Mono users than others
(for instance, WPF).
For ASP.NET development, Mono 2.4 essentially supports most of what is
in .NET 3.5 (minus LINQ to SQL and WCF, though those are in progress).
For a proof of concept like you are proposing, since Mono is packaged
and QA tested on SUSE, I would suggest starting with the openSUSE VMware
image Mono hosts, see if Mono 2.4 is going to be capable of meeting your
needs, and spare yourself the pain of building and configuring Mono for
another distribution for a later day.
