Newb, no clue how to get started.

I've heard Terrarium is a great way to learn C#.  I'm new to .NET and am not sure what to do with the packages on the download page. 

What are the requirements?  I have Visual Studio 2003.  Is that enough? I've downloaded the Terrarium-2.0.msi and it's running fine. 

I found this page:

It has a brief tutorial for creating a carnivore.  However, when I get to the step where it asks me to browse and find organismbase.dll, no such file exists. 

I've looked all over this site and can't find a simple tutorial stating what I need to get started and how to set everything up.  What am I missing?

You will find the OrganismBase.dll in the same folder where you installed the terrarium client. Usually is C://Program Files/.NET Terrarium 2.0/Client.

Add a reference to this dll to your animal project.

You´ll find more documentation on: go in Documentation and find the topics on the top right sidebar.
