Recovery console cmdcons

I would like to install recovery console for XP but
the file cmdcons is missing from winnt32.exe , I was told it is deleted after installation , is this
correct and if so where can I get a copy ?

Found this in another forum if it helps at all - "I do not have the cmdcons file either on my Windows XP Professional disk or on any of my hard drives. Can anyone tell me where I can get a copy so I can use the Recovery Console?"

"i dont think that cmdcons is a file. i believe it is a command line command if u look at the following:

%windir%\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons

u are executing the winnt32.exe file with a command line switch of /cmdcons. i think that is right or i might just be talking smack. not completely sure."
