I have a custom theme. There is no comments.php file, Wordpress is using whatever the default is. I need to modify the comments area, but I want to base my changes off of the default template. Where is the default template and how can I copy it into my own theme's comments.php?

I copied the comments.php file from there over to my custom theme and am ready to rock. I was told in a WordPress forum that this file is deprecated though and I should really be building my own.
