NT 4 only above service pack 4/5/6, and NTFS.
You can confige above the 2GB space.

You should be able to make all but the first any size you want. Do you mean the primary partition. A great utility is Partition Magic ($$$). This allows you to repartition on the fly.

NT4 will only allow up to a max of 4 gig for a boot partition. DOS itself only allows 2 gig, but if you create the partition during NT's isntalling process, you can go up to 4 gig.

YOU SAID THAT NT4 WILL ALLOW UP TO A MAX OF 4 GB
BUT HOW CAN IT BE POSSIBLE, BECAUSE WHILE ONE IS INSTALLING NT SERVER 4.0, IT DOESN`T ALLOW MAKING THE ACTIVE PARTITION MORE THAN 2 GB.
BUT I HAVE SEEN SYSTEMS RUNNING ON NT SERVER 4 WITH AN ACTIVEPATITION OF 4 GB. HAS IT BEEN DONE WITH PARTITION MAGIC OR THERE IS ANY TECHNIQUE TO MAKE IT ALLOW MORE THAN 2 GB AT THE TIME OF INSTALLATION. PLEASE PROVIDE DETAILS. THANKS.
