Unhappy Lost kernel .config file...

I lost my kernel configuration file but I have the kernel. Is there a way to create a .config file from the kernel...? I really don't want to have to go through that again. Maybe I should start backing up stuff...?!!!

can you do ls -al to check if your .config still there?

No, it's gone... I had it save in my home directory and did a little accidental cleanup...
