you should keep a copy of your current kernel config somewhere,
so that whenever you need to build a new kernel you can use it to
to make a copy of your config in, say, your home directory,
zcat /proc/config.gz > ~/config-$(uname -r)
and you'll get a filename with the current kernel
version you're using
As for the sources you can get the latest kernel from
