> This isn't kismet, this is your distribution. Presumably you're using some sort of livecd, or a distro that otherwise decided it was a good idea to wipe your configs. You'll need to talk to whoever set up your distro about how to undo it, Kismet absolutely doesn't do any config replacement on its own.
