SubjectRecovering .config from vmlinuz and

I've a box running a linux 2.4.18-14 (RH stuff), for which I've lost
the .config file...

I've gone through a long .config recovery process by looking at the
entries in, changing the configuration, building the kernel,
diffing the new with the reference one, again and again.

The diff process was done only on the symbol names and the last diff
states :
diff -urN | less

Could someone direct me to where is located this "configs" stuff
that I can't find ?

Second question : the addresses in front of the symbols don't match
(except for the first ones)... I'm using the same kernel tree, the
same compiler... Any idea ? First diff is :
