In most of the articles and forum entries everyone always mentions that installing Mono is greatly simplified by using Red Carpet. Now that I've done it, I'd have to agree. Getting there was, however, not as easy as I would have liked.
In this article I'll provide the step by step instructions for installing Mono on SuSE Linux Professional 9.1 using Red Carpet 2.2.3. After reading, you should have a clear idea of how to get through the installation, and hopefully avoid some of the snags I ran into. In the end, with this article, setting up Red Carpet will be as easy as using it to install Mono.
