FYI: the /boot/config-2.6.11<something> is a configuration file that was used to build the working 2.6.11 kernel you are talking about. If you from the console or command line type something like 'uname -a' minus the single quotemarks the output would tell which kernel was active on your system, example;
$ uname -a
Linux Aspire5000 18.104.22.168 #1 Sat Jul 8 21:40:04 EDT 2006 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
And if you look at your /boot diectory (folder) you should hopefully see (using the above as the example) a file named config-22.214.171.124 which (using any test editor) starts with something like;
# Automatically generated make config: don't edit
# Linux kernel version: 126.96.36.199
# Sat Jul 8 21:28:34 2006
Building a Fedora/Red Hat kernel is a little bit different then the kernel rebuild guide suggests, the steps are;
make menuconfig (see note below)
Note: 'make xconfig' or 'make gconfig' may be used instead. In any case this is where you make any changes do the kernel configuration.
The /boot/config-2.6.11<something> file can be used as a starting point by typing before one of the "make *config" something like;
cp /boot/config-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 .config
