Visual Basic 6.0 is not using the .NET Framework at all. If you want to 
compile a VB6 project you have to use Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 that 
will result in a native Windows .exe file. As Rolf said Wine is able to 
run Windows executables on Linux.

Another solution can be to convert the VB6 source code to Visual Basic 
.NET that will be able to run on Linux using Mono if you don't use 
Windows API, native DLL or OCX files. Note that Microsoft Visual Studio 
.NET and later contains a conversion assistant but you most likely will 
have to modify the code by hand to be able to compile and run the 
converted code.
