get .config file for make from builted Image


I have a working and well compiled bzImage running kernel 2.6.5.
BUT (what a stupid error, I know it) I've removed src dir linux where there was the right .config file for make.

Now ,sadly, I had to add a new module to the kernel image but I don't want to set again all parameters with menuconfig:

Is it possible to get the .config file from the booting kernel image???
if yes how

You may have a copy of the .config file in /boot. I don't think that there is any way to reproduce the .config file from the booting kernel image.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
