What I meant was that if you build the source of a kernel that you
already have running on your system (e.g., from a debian package), then
you can copy over the config file that accompanies that kernel. For
example, let's say I have some linux-image-2.6.32* package installed
(for when my custom kernel breaks, or when I need immediate support for
something, and I don't have the time to build the support into my
custom kernel). If I wanted to build a custom 2.6.32, I'd download
some source for that version (either package 'linux-source-2.6.32', or
from kernel.org), and then copy over '/boot/config/config-2.6.32*' into
the source directory.
Copying over a config from an earlier kernel may work, but it may
leave some options not configured optimally. Even so, it will probably
be good for a starting point, which you can then look over and modify.
What I actually do is, whenever I build a new version, I begin by
copying my custom configuration into the new source directory, and then
look through it to see what interesting new options are there.
