So you can't get into recovery mode while the phone is on?

The only way is to (re-)boot.
Recovery mode requires: the (file)system is not in normal use by apps or user.

It's like replacing the sparks at the engine of your car. It's not possible while engine is running and the engine bonnet is closed.

turn the phone off wait for it to vibrate or the LED's to go go off. Then Hold Vol Up + Home Button +Power all at the same time when you see the boot screen (black and white text saying Samsung Galaxy S I9000) let go of power and keep holding Volume and Home and it should boot into recover mode.

Be care full if you hold the home button to long it selects reboot device and you have to do the above again.
