If you mean config.sys -- that file is created during the installation of Windows (ie it doesn't actually exist anywhere until then). Consequently you can only restore it by re-installing Windows as it's contents are unique to your particular system. Often, the file is created simply for compatibility reasons but might contain nothing, depending on your setup and what's installed, so if you are still able to run Windows don't worry about it. But if Windows won't run because it's missing, you will have to re-install from scratch.

Config.sys is not needed to start Windows 98. If Windows won't start because config.sys is missing, you have more serious issues.
In fact config.sys and autoexec.bat are not needed, but they are provided for legacy reasons.
