Mono is binary compatible with .NET, so yeah. You don't have to use
MonoDevelop to make your program work outside of Windows, the exe generated
by Visual Studio will work. Did you try MoMA (http://mono-project.com/MoMA)
on your program?
After that, the next step would be actually tying it (using the LiveCD on
the download page, for example).
