First: you can use the same assemblies VS generates, just copy them to a
linux machine and you should be able to execute them (typing 'mono
myprog.exe' in a terminal)

Now if you want to use vbnc, that's also possible. Vbnc is mono's equivalent
of MS' vbc compiler, it takes exactly the same arguments. ('vbnc /?' will
get you some basic help, otherwise you can search msdn for vbc, the same
information is applicable to vbnc too). 

The easy way to get the command line arguments is to compile in VS, look at
the output window/tab in VS, it will contain the arguments passed to vbc
('vbc file1.vb ...'), copy the entire line, paste in a linux terminal,
replace 'vbc' with 'vbnc' and hit enter. If the compiler isn't able to
compile, it's most probably a compiler bug and bug reports are welcome :)
