I am told to use response manager by using D:\1386\winnt32.exe/cmdcoms on my
xp disc but the "cmdcoms" is not on my xp disc.
Does anyone know the answer or any other way of changing file attributes?

X:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons

Where X: is the CD-ROM drive letter.

See section "Install the Windows Recovery Console After Windows is
Already Installed on the Computer" in this article:

BTW, you don't need to enter Recovery Console to change the file attributes.
When in Windows, you can right-click the file and choose Properties. Set the
attributes accordingly. Or, you may use the Attrib command (from CMD.exe ),
no need to enter the Recovery Console.
