Copy config from Flash to Startup-Config

Having problems copying my config file from flash to startup-config and getting it to stay.

The files on my flash card somehow became corrupted while using Cisco's crappy SDM program.  Not too big of a problem there though, because I had made a backup of the flashcard.  So I formated the flash card and then copied the backup files onto it.  Put the flash card into the router, and fire it up, and the router runs a few processes, opening the IOS image and such, and then askes me the following:

" Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]: "

I click no, because I have a config file that I want to upload to the startup/running-config from my flash card.  I'm then brought to the default prompt of: "router>".  I switch to exec mode, and do a "show run" and see that there is just a very basic bare bones config, with not much of anything set.  So I next issue the command "copy flash:Config.txt start" and the router does it's thing that then responds with " [OK] 6198 bytes copied in 5.468 secs".  I then power the router down, and power it back up, and it boots up with the default bare bones configuration as if I didn't copy anything.
I've even looked in the directory of nvram, and see that startup-config file is 6198 bytes, which is the same as my config.
Any ideas what the problem is, or what I'm doing wrong?

Try doing this:

conf t
config-register 0x2102

Then reload again.
