This file is just a copy of the config file which was used to compile
the kernel you are running. Changing this file now will have no effect
whatsoever on your kernel. If you want to enable CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G you
have to compile your own kernel after installing the packages
"kernel-package" and "kernel-source-2.6.8".
We recently had a nice discussion about recompiling a kernel to activate
HIGHMEM64G. It includes a "crash-course" introduction to the process,
written by Matt Zagrabelny, which should give you a good start:
(This thread is about kernel 2.4.27, but the steps are essentially the
same for 2.6.8.)
