There's probably no need to completely reinstall your distro.  Just
uninstall the stuff you've installed from source, and next time when
setting up a second Mono install, follow the Parallel Mono Environments
guide on the wiki.

If you're really a Mono nut, and don't care what Linux distribution you
use, I recommend trying openSUSE, which has Mono Preview repositories
maintained by the Mono team (so they're pretty good!).  Then you don't
have to bother with the hassle of setting up the parallel environment at
all.  Ubuntu's great, but it can be a bit of a wait to get stable Mono
packages after a release occurs.
