[Mono-list] Understanding a bit how things work

I have worked with mono before but it has been a little while and I
now have a Windows project including a solution file and I can open
and partially compile that project in mono-develop. I can also invoke
gmcs from a command line and see there is a /usr/bin/mono/ directory.
So far so good.

I am searching for a few clues on how packages are installed and
searched with mono as I need to understand how to use (or wean)
WinForms, DirectX and slimDX in this new project.

Perhaps this is all written down in wiki's somewhere and I have been
googling a bit, so some search terms (other then "mono" or go to
http://mono-project.com which I have already done) are a helpful

I think part of the answer is going to be "how does gac work?" as I
think that is part of what allows one to bring in various packages.

In any case, I am searching for a few ends in the big ball of string
that I can follow and increase my understanding as I embark on a mono
project that contains WinForms and DirectX.
