[MonoDevelop] How to Embed a Configuration File in an Assembly?

for my software project (ERP system) written in C# with MonoDevelop, I would 
like to store certain configurations needed by the application in text files, 
which would then be embedded in the ready-to-use assembly. OK, to add a text 
file to the resource list is not difficult, but how shall I address this text 
file in my application? For icons I have Gdk.Pixbuf.LoadFromResource(), but 
this only works with graphics files of certain types.

And: As the config file resides inside the assembly, I can't use any 
filesystem references.

What would interest me most, would be an analogon to the Java 
ResourceBundle.GetBundle() method or the possibility to address certain parts 
of the assemly by using special URIs like the jar://... URIs in Java.

Thanks a lot for your help.
