Actually, if you attribute your class with the SerializableAttribute, the default serialization will serialize public and private fields of your class. There is an interface, ISerializable, that allows you to control the serialization so that you, the developer, controls what gets serialized and what doesn't. This does go along - like the original poster mentioned - with a constructor that has the signature (SerializationInfo, StreamingContext). This constructor can have any access modifier, but are common protected so that subclasses can pass serialization info to its base class.

There are also other serialization interfaces that can be useful, such as the IDeserializationCallback that allows you to perform any layout or hook-ups after serialization is complete, and the ISerializationSurrogate that - with an IFormatter implementation allows you to serialize Types that are themselves serializable. You can also use a SerializationBinder with the formatter to serialize from one Type to another, using SerializationBinder.BindToType. This seems especially handy when you have to upgrade a serialized file with older versions of Types.
