Basically, you don't. The 4GB partition limit is hard coded into NT.

Check the information and links in this previous Q&A question:

With the "correct" version of NT, you can get to 7.8GB for the boot partition.

A "better" recommendation is to set a very small boot partition (150MB) and use the rest of the the drive as an extended partition.

Microsoft released a driver to overcome this install problem. This is loaded when the install asks for upgraded drivers or new devices during the process. Download the driver from Microsoft onto a floppy and reinstall, insert disk when the system prompts.
