Has anyone succeeded in installing Mono (the Linux .NET framework project) on the (outdated I know) RedHat 7.1 Linux distribution?

I need advice where to get started, I could find no resource on the web that would refer to RedHat and Mono together...

It was a PITA to get 2.6 on Ubuntu 9.10, but doable. Are you running into any specific problems? – Frank Krueger Jan 8 '10 at 23:10
It's so outdated that one of its successors is 5 releases ahead, and the other is just a couple shy... – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jan 8 '10 at 23:10
@Frank Krueger, I don't know where to even start... – Aviad P. Jan 8 '10 at 23:11
This is probably no help or consolation to you, but my Ubuntu 9.10 distribution contains Tomboy Notes so there's probably a mono underneath... it's there and I didn't have to do anything for it. Is "to hell with this, I ain't supporting this" an option for you? – Carl Smotricz Jan 8 '10 at 23:20
Haha, yes it is, but it's highly desireable. – Aviad P. Jan 8 '10 at 23:22
