As far as Mono goes, the docs on the Mono download page for Mac OS X really
need to be updated since I don't think the latest releases of Mono 2.10
work with Mac OS X 10.5 (I think up to 2.10.8 worked, not sure about

(you'll probably want the MDK and not the MRE)

I would highly recommend upgrading your OS to 10.7 or 10.8 if you can as
the newer versions of Mono & MonoDevelop's are much better.

Hope that helps,
