is there anyway i can download a copy of the recovery disk??????? since i'm away from home and i have no access to the recovery disk and i need to use my pc ASAP

It's a recovery console not disk. It's on the XP installation disk. No you can't download it.

can i just download it on this laptop and den burn it on CD and boot from CD on my comp??????

You say you have the XP Pro disk, so why would you want to burn anything when you already have the recovery console on the installation disk?

i have had a nightmare with ie6 install unistall sfc /scannow ect, finished up with a system that would not boot properly, all you have to do is press F8 when the system is starting and select boot with last good know configuration, that should do it
