on a fresh system, there's a good chance that the associated config
file is actually in /boot, with the name config-<whatever version>.
at least, that's a good place to start.
p.s. the 2.6 kernel comes with a config option to bury the config
file inside the actual kernel itself. IIRC, to get at that file,
you'd use a utility called extract-ikconfig.
