That's not the real mono version, it's the .NET version number (mono's ASP.Net has to report the same version number so that applications checking the version number continue to work as-is when moving from Windows/.NET to Mono).

Executing 'mono --version' in a terminal will get you the real mono version.

Executing 'xsp' in a terminal will tell you if it's installed, if not I'm not sure which package you'll have to install (distros might group applications into different packages, I don't know how Debian does it).

This is possible, I'm pretty sure mono-basic hasn't been packaged for Debian yet.

You can compile from source following these instructions: http://www.mono-project.com/Visual_Basic#From_Source_Code
