Default Want to reformat windows XP - lost my reformat cd how to make a new one?

Hi guys im new this this forum hopefully someone can help me out. i know it can be done becausei did it to my friends computer.... but i cant remember how to do it now....

What happened is I lost my restore disk, and i want to reformat my computer. From what i remember on my friends computer is that you are allowed to make ONE copy of the restore disk, when you lose your copy (but only one copy can be made) with this you can reformat your xp and reinstall windows.... it was made from the command prompt i think... It was a two step process i didnt need to download anything and it was made in less than 15 min.

My computer is from 2002 and i have reformatted it several times, and i dont want to use the system restore function.

any suggestions?
