Hi Marc-AntÃøn

Maybe what I was attempting to do was a bit strange and I don't
understand why it crashed and did the other things.

Drive 1: C, D, E, F, G   with G the ext2
Drive 2: H, I, H, K, L, M, N  with N ext2

Drive 1 has a working Mint installation that was updated with
EasyMint a few years ago. That was when I discovered the
problem with Mintnet.

I ran Easymint and tried to install it on H as the boot partition
and N as the ext2 Mint partition.

That was when I had the worst problems but once I got the Milan
to boot from Drive 2 by swapping the IDE leads, the EasyMint
install worked better booting from the new C partition and
with I as the new ext2 partition.

When I looked at the POSITION file it looked like a binary.

Having to re-start the installation was difficult because I
couldn't go back to previous steps to repeat them.

The installation is working now and I have been doing some
experiments with Mintnet to see if the problem still exists.
