Grep a file

I have a config file that uses  ; as a comment character.  
Unfortunately there are soooooooo many comments I can't read the  
options that have been enabled.

Can I use grep or another tool to pull all the lines in this file  
that do not start with the ; and place them into another file so I  
can actually read what this file is doing?

Thanks for any help.
