You can install the stock kernel, and /boot/config-2.4.19-<whatever> has the
configuration. You can copy that file to /usr/src/linux/.config and use it
as a beginning to configure your own kernel.

Alternatively, you can download the kernel deb, and instead of installing it
just extract the files to someplace like /tmp/kernel. Then the cofiguration
would be in /tmp/kernel/boot/config-2.4.19-<whatever>.
