An assembly is the .NET term for a self-describing collection of modules
having so called manifest.
An assembly is a unit of .NET application.

A library is usually an assembly that contains reusable code but is not an
executable program by itself.

A component is just a particular type of class supporting design-time
features.

Thank you Dmitriy. That helped some. Looks like I still have quite a ways to
go before I can become a C# guru... ;)
