Recovering ASA 5505 vpn config from flash card?

A Cisco ASA 5505 on a remote site broke down. It will not power on anymore. It was used to remotely access some PCs on that site.
Our vendor will send us a replacement.
I'm not familiar with exactly how the connection was configured but I imagine it was probably password protected.

If I swap in the flash card to the new ASA, will it all work or do the passwords need to be re-configured?
What if I copy the config to a PC using a CF card reader and then copy from there to the new ASA?
