MySQL optional service on Win2k is not starting

How to repeat:
If I install a mysql optional service by giving 
mysqld-max-nt --install "some service" the service is not starting.
    
but if I run the following 

mysqld-max-nt --install 
the default mysql service is starting.

For to install an optional service like:

mysqld-max-nt --install myopt

you need to add a section called [myopt] in the my.ini file e.g.:

[mysqld]
......

[myopt]
basedir=....
datadir....
.............

Notice that you need to specify different port for every service
running on the same machine and the data must not shared between
the servers.
