[ubuntu-uk] Mint 9 and Windows 2000 Server

Just for your peace of mind...
I also have a Mint (9) installation - I use it only for Wine so as not
to 'pollute' my Ubuntu set up.  I can guarantee that up to Mint 9 it is
in fact Ubuntu based.  Mint 9 proudly boasts itself the fact that it is
built on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.  I do not know anything about Mint10 however.

Sorry, I assumed that Mint was still an Ubuntu derivative...
