That doesn't matter - assuming that the "moin" command and the MoinMoin 
code can be found via PATH / PYTHONPATH.

If that is not the case, cd moin-1.6.2/ (of an unpacked moin 1.6.2 
tar.gz), then:

MoinMoin/script/moin.py --config-dir=........

No. It is rather advisable that it does NOT run (or there could be 
changes while you run the migration).

No, the data/ dir is the same as from that moin version (likely 1.5.5a).

If above does not work for you: I have written some "my way to migrate" 
docs, you find them as a subpage of my wiki homepage.
