    I save all of my config's in the /boot directory. When I want a
    new kernel, I do a "make menuconfig" then load the old config,
    and either make changes and save and exit, or just save and exit.
    Then do a make dep && make clean && make zImage....

    It's worked for 3 years no prob (well, since 2.0.0 anyways).
