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

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

Thank you
