OK, this one is easy.  The RTGINI dataset is archaic (not old, archaic!).  A
LONG time ago, the RTGINI dataset was divided into three different datasets:

GINIEAST - NOAAPort images from GOES-East
GINIWEST - NOAAPort images from GOES-West
GINICOMP - NOAAPort composite images

A quick 'grep RTGINI *.BAT' run from your /home/mcidas/batches directory shows
that there are a LOT of references to RTGINI that should be changed.  I made
the change to EREGIONALVIS.BAT show you how.  Basically, the ADDE dataset
descriptor portion of the name will indicate the relevant GOES platform.  For

GE1KVIS -> GOES-East 1 km VIS (0.65 um)
GE4KIR  -> GOES-East 4 km IR (10.7 um)

GW1KVIS -> GOES-West 1 km VIS (0.65 um)
GW4KIR  -> GOES-West 4 km IR (10.7 um)

The list of composite images is a bit more difficult to figure out.
Here is a 'DSINFO IMAGE GINICOMP' listing from the server ADDE.UCAR.EDU:
