  2. Correct. Show conf is the saved config. Show running is the current
    config that is not saved.
    Not until you do the 'wr mem' or 'copy running-config startup-config'

    Could someone enlighten me as to the difference?

    SHOW CONFIG is the old one before I made the changes,
    but SHOW RUN gives the one I newly configured

    Is my running config saved?

  4. To be precise, from the "sh ?":
    configuration Contents of Non-Volatile memory
    running-config Current operating configuration
    startup-config Contents of startup configuration

    So, a show startup-config and show configuration is identical. and unless
    you have done a "copy running-configuration startup-configuration" or a
    "write memory" you can not be sure your configuration is saved.
