Nowadays the simplest methods to install a full MiNT setup on Atari machines are the VanillaMiNT and EasyMiNT distributions. But I don't know them much myself.

That's totally true.
This is why I wrote an fVDI driver for WinUAE RTG graphics more than 1 year ago
Currently it only supports 16-bit true color video modes, which are far enough for serious stuff. Preliminary work works perfectly with plain EmuTOS (no FreeMiNT / XaAES yet). I used WinUAE RTG blit acceleration, so it runs very fast. I still have to finish support for the mouse sprite, then I will publish that work.
Definitely, I must find the time to finish that
