Yes, surprisingly easy too.

Use this program that creates the Windows XP Recovery Console CD Automatic Recovery CD Creator (ARCDC)

Automated Recovery CD Creator (ARCDC) is a tool designed to create your own Recovery Console CD using the Microsoft Bootdisks, a toolkit and a lot of glue! Normally the process is to download a Microsoft Bootdisk, extract it to a folder, extract some files, create the boot loader and lastly add some extra files. Now to make Tech Life easier, ARCDC does this whole process for you!

Download links on that page.

Good Luck
