Kernel Compiling question...

Say I have a 2.4.18 kernel, from a full install, for example, and I want to go to a 2.4.20 or so. The 2.4.18 has all my modules, options, etc. Is there any way I can compile the new kernel exactly like the old one? That is, is there any way to take the options from the 2.4.18 and put them in the 2.4.20 without necessarily knowing exactly what went into the old kernel?

Nevermind. If I'd just RTFM instead of wasting bandwidth, I'd figure it out.

If anyone was also wondering the same thing, check out the Kernel HOWTO.
