[Gtk-sharp-list] Marshaling question

OK, I can't seem to find any good documentation on this,
so I'll just ask the question. (If anyone does know of
any good documentation on this, then please let me know.)
I am creating C# a method with the following signature:
public override int Read(byte buffer, int offset, int count);
Here, "buffer" (will eventually) contain the stuff that got read.
"offset" tells you where to start storing stuff in "buffer".
("offset" used a zero based index.) And "count" is the maximun
number of bytes to read from the current stream. Also, it returns
the total number of bytes read from the stream.
Now, I'm using this to wrap the GnomeVFS procedure:
GnomeVFSResult gnome_vfs_read(GnomeVFSHandle *handle ,
gpointer buffer ,
GnomeVFSFileSize bytes ,
GnomeVFSFileSize *bytes_read );
The problem I am having is with "buffer" in "gnome_vfs_read". I
need to get a the get at the pointer for "Read"'s buffer. In
pseudo code, this is basically what I want to do...
public override int Read(byte buffer, int offset, int count)
byte * bufferptr = (byte * ) buffer;
bufferptr = bufferptr + offset;
Although, I am not sure how to do this. Anyone here have any
(I.e., anyone know how to get a pointer to "buffer"'s memory
