the only thng you need to do it do a write memory, then a show running-config, copy and paste that into a text file.  if you ever need to restore the config, you just go back into the CLI command line interface and Paste the config form teh text file..  that is it.

Another method would be to setup a TFTP server (or load a TFTP service on your PC) and issue the  "copy run tftp" from the CLI. You'll then be prompted for the IP of the server, and what you want to name the file.

Well, you would then have to save the notepad contents as a text file on the PC.
