You will have a lot of things that will change in this upgrade! Don't
hope to have nothing to do! And be ready to fix many thinks! ;-)

The usual answer to your question is to copy the /boot/config-2.2.x in
your .config in the kernel sources tree. Then a make old-config.

But I think you should check everything by hand yourself; because from
2.2 to 2.6 there is so many things that have changed...
Take the time to read the doc /usr/src/linux/Documentation/...

Good luck!
