Sorry, I don't understand your question. But both config.sys and 
fdconfig.sys are regular ASCII text files.

On all the MS-DOS based Windows cd's (95/ME) there is a directory called 
\OLDMSDOS which includes the EDIT text editor. Which you simply copy to 
a directory in your path and can be fired up, if you booted your Windows 
machine in DOS mode.

FreeDOS also includes a couple of texteditors, also one called EDIT.
