Recovery is baked into the kernel. If you flash a recovery separate from the kernel, it will only persist until the next reboot. If you want a specific version of CWM, you're going to need to run a kernel that has it if you want it permanently.
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !
Failure to search is the leading cause of male impotence on XDA
If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?

Go read the kernel threads in the two development sections.
