switch config

I have an HP procure switch that is about 6 years old.  I ordered a new Hp procure switch and am wondering some things about configuration.  I want this to be exactly like the old switch.  How would I go about configuring it to be the same?  I never changed out a switch before.  I have always had an outside company do it for us but I want to start doing these things myself.  Any steps to make this work correctly?

I would begin by using a program like "putty" to copy the running-config to a file. Print this file out and you should be able to setup basic NEW switch configuration with this print out (IP address, VLANs, VLANs tagged and untagged, ip route, layer 3, default gateway, etc.) Everything you need should be in the running-config print out for the new switch.
