Actually, I got it to work.  I just copied:


to my Mono\lib directory.  I don't know if I need all of those files or 

I'm trying the same thing on Linux, though and I can't seem to get it to 
work.  I've tried copying the same files as above to my 
/usr/lib/mono/1.0 directory to no success and decided to try copying 
them to my /usr/bin directory (since that is where the mono executable 
lives) to no succes as well.  (I have gotten Mono on Linux to run the 
__main__.exe, though.  But while I'm in the IronPython/bin directory.)  
Anyone have any ideas on where I can copy these IronPython exe and dll 
files on Linux to get it working?
