Alright, I got the following when I ran 'mono --version':

Mono JIT compiler version 1.9.1 (tarball)
Copyright (C) 2002-2007 Novell, Inc and Contributors. www.mono-project.com
        TLS:           __thread
        GC:            Included Boehm (with typed GC)
        SIGSEGV:       altstack
        Notifications: epoll
        Architecture:  x86
        Disabled:      none

What does this mean?

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

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

You can compile from source following these instructions:
