You must have a TFTP server or connect a computer via RS-232 and use x or y modem connection.  Telnet or console into the switch and run copy the start and/or run configuration to the TFTP server or connected PC.  The menu options on the 4000M are fairly easy to navigate around.

I understand about the tftp server as i do firmware upgrades all the time however i have never seen and option in the switch to export the Config out to the TFTP Server.  Basically im looking for some detaled instructions.

Cool.  That's actually the toughest part of saving the config file.  The following is a link to HPs manual on the 4000M:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/networking/software/59692320.pdf

Go to page A-8 and follow the directions there for transferring the configuration to a TFTP server.
