LDM-MCIDAS system?  Do you mean that you are attempting to get McIDAS
to display model output?

>As near as I can figure I am supposed to install the decoders-2.3.5 package.

If you are really referring to McIDAS, then the decoders package has nothing
to do with getting/decoding the gridded data.  The ingesting is done by
the LDM getting HRS products; the decoding is done by McIDAS-XCD.  It
could be that decoding of the gridded products has not been enabled on
your new ingest system (since you moved things over to your DEC alpha (true?)).
This would be done by:

o having the 'xcd_run HRS' action _not_ commented in ~ldm/etc/pqact.conf
o becoming 'mcidas' and:

  cd workdata

Assuming that the REDIRECTions for McIDAS GRID files are correct and that
the only thing wrong was that the gridded data decoding was not turned
on (it is sent out this way in the distribution), then you should start
getting data.

We can address the rest of your message as soon as we are sure that
we are talking about the same things.
