Reusing .config during kernel rebuild

I am running Red Hat 7.1 I just need to upgrade the values
of some kernel parameters so that I can install Oracle.
Is there any way I can reuse the .config of the currenly
running kernel? The /usr/src/linux/.config file has already
been re-written a few times while I was going through
some of the kernel compilation steps. I mainly want to avoid
specifying all the loadable modules.

It is possible, if you have the file copied somewhere. For kernels coming with distros, it's usually in /boot.
