The file "confout.gro" is the default name of the final output coordinates of an 
mdrun process, unless you provide a different file name to mdrun -c.  In this 
case, the protocol is:

1. Inflate the system (produce system_inflated.gro)
2. Minimize the inflated system (produce confout.gro, unless otherwise named)
3. Begin shrinking the system, starting with the output of step 2.

So "confout.gro" is the _output_ of step 2 and the _input_ of step 3.
