cisco 3600 router config restore

I took a backup of my cisco router and now want to restore the config to another router that has the same interfaces etc... how would i restore the config without merging the config to the new router? I have tried to restore but it appears there is a merge that takes place and i want to completely overwrite my config to be the same as my other cisco router.

tftp the config to a new file in flash, then copy newfile startup-config then reload ?

If that doesn't work you might have to erase the startup-config before doing that.

thanks for the reply, i am seeing  replace cmmand can do it, but not sure on the exact synatx yet...
configure replace is ment to put your running config back to the startup config. (like if you would reboot without saving).
