The .config file is in the kernel source directory, so you don't modify 
anything in the running system.

The configuration processes for the kernel either takes the current 
.config for a starting point and then writes out a modified .config 
(e.g. make menuconfig) or overwrites the .config file completely (e.g. 
make defconfig).

The options available are detailed in 'make help'.
