Not sure you need a batch file as such, usually your default q3config.cfg in your insta folder will load when you start a game of insta. Your settings in there should load automatically, complete with name, tags, etc
I used to have a problem with my cfg in that sometimes it would overwrite itself. So i made mine read only... this means any changes i make during play are discarded once i exit a server and it reverts back to my "good" copy, so if you are losing changes you make it might be worth checking that you are allowed to write to the file.
You could make a new config and save it in your insta folder, call it for instance GradeA.cfg if you want to switch to this cfg ingame, pull down the console and type /exec GardeA.cfg and it will load it up with all of the settings in there.
Hope this helped
If it wasn't for the last minute, nothing would ever get done
I also have my cfg's as read-only, but I also keep a couple of cfg's in my base3 folder and have binds to them. So if I join a server and things are screwed up....I can just press one key to exec a new one.

I wrote a batch file for my config Usually Quake always overwrote my nice config and it didn't look like it does now at all anymore. Generated by Quake, urgh. Besides there was also the problem that if I make changes then I have to do them in every config of every game folder that I have because I use only 1 config for all mods. I have a video config as well, that is the one that I need to use when I capture scenes for my movie. So I have written one batch which when I exec it, copies the safe auri.cfg from the Quake III Arena folder to all mod folders and replaces the q3configs. If the q3configs in the folders will be changed, that is no problem, because always when I make changes in auri.cfg they are being replaced. Same with video. Video.cfg from Quake III arena will be copied to all mod folders with the name q3config.cfg. That's easy and helps me a LOT!. Here an example:
@echo off del arena\q3config.cfg del IU1.2Beta\q3config.cfg del IU1.2Beta2\q3config.cfg del IU1.2Beta3\q3config.cfg del InstaUnlagged\q3config.cfg del proball\q3config.cfg del battle\q3config.cfg del baseq3\q3config.cfg del defrag\q3config.cfg del defrag191\q3config.cfg del cpma\q3config.cfg del osp\q3config.cfg del beryllium\q3config.cfg del ufreeze\q3config.cfg del quickdeath\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg quickdeath\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg ufreeze\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg beryllium\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg osp\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg arena\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg cpma\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg IU1.2Beta\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg IU1.2Beta2\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg IU1.2Beta3\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg InstaUnlagged\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg proball\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg battle\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg baseq3\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg defrag\q3config.cfg copy auri.cfg defrag191\q3config.cfg
That's how my config.bat looks inside. Good day. John
