Default kernel config

Does anyone know where can I find the default kernel config that slackware 9.1 comes with (bare.i i think) I'm a newb when it comes to kernel configuration and hardware installation on linux. I tried recompiling my kernel but after wards some features ceased to work. I figured if could base my new kernel on standard slack kernel maybe I would've succeeded.

the default config file should be in the /boot directory with the kernel image. It should have a name like config-ide-2.4.22 (or whatever kernel version you installed). This can be copied to /usr/src/linux as .config for compiling your new kernel.

cp /boot/config-ide-2.4.22 /usr/src/linux/.config
