The xfs should load from your Mint system directory automatically
during the mint boot.

Edit your extendos.cnf and copy the *DOS line and comment-out
one copy by inserting a semi-colon at the start of the line.

The change the new line from *DOS to *XFS.
The path does not matter as it is  not used by Unimint.xfs

Make sure the new version of Extendos is in your AUTO folder
BEFORE mintp.prg

I hope that helps.
