If the result of whatever Paul did was you installing winelib he didn't 
really help you.

Don't try running it. It's not gonna get you to the point where you can 
successfully run System.Windows.Forms applications. And few if any people 
will help you debug code that hasn't been worked on in 9 months.

You can look here http://www.mono-project.com/contributing/winforms.html for 
details, or, read just about ony of my recent messages in the list archive, 
since it seems that I'm answering that very question daily.

If you want to run System.Windows.Forms applications you have two choices 
right now:
1) Wait until the managed implementation of SWF is released in a package/rpm
2) Download the latest gdiplus and mcs from svn and build it yourself.

Please note that Paul's description of downloading cairo is out-of-date, 
cairo-0.2.0 has been released.
