Hey!
Windows Recovery console is accessed when you are repairing the windows OS. By the way why do you want to access it? Any specific reason? Or just to experiment...? I suggest you don't experiment with recovery console if you are noob at windows repairing...! All the best....!

Hey!
It is not advicable to experiment with windows recovery console unless you are familiar with it and know how to use it...! This may corrupt your existing OS... Well, refer this thread : How to access all drives/dir. frm recovery console???

You can access the windows recovery console by following the below steps :

  • Boot from windows XP CD
  • At the first user interaction screen press "R" key
  • Done...
But make sure you don't screw-up your machine...! All the best...!

Use the Windows XP CD to boot your CD and at the first screen where you pressed 'R', press Enter this time. Then press F8 to agree to license agreement, then It will automatically detect your Windows and will tell you that it detected Windows XP installation do you want to repair it, at this screen press 'R' to repair your Windows XP. All the best!
