Hi,
You can use fdisk for this but is not a easy way to install NT4.0.
Using FDISK:
-first of all your partition/s must be FAT16 (NT4.0 don't recognize other partitions-except NTFS which can't be made with fdisk)
-using a DOS boot diskette the partition can't be larger than 500Mb.
-using a Win9x boot diskette the partition can't be larger than 2Gb.
Change in BIOS boot sequence: A,C,..
DOS boot diskette:
-boot from diskette
-type in a:\fdisk
-create primary partition
-set as active partition, previous created partition
-create extended partition for all remaining space(you can't do this for a large HDD)
-create logical partitions
WIN9x boot diskette:
-boot from diskette
-type a:\fdisk
-at the question about if you want to use large disk support answer with NO (because you need FAT16)
-the next steps are identical with DOS diskette.
After you made the partitions reboot computer, also from diskette, and use format for formating your partitions.
Also you must install aCD-ROM driver to access your NT4.0 CD.
THE EASY WAY:
1.Change in BIOS boot sequence to: CD-ROM,C,.. (if you have an original WinNT CD-bootable).
Your computer will boot from CD and will start the installation wizard (you don't need to have partitions).
2.Create a set of 3 boot diskettes on other computer with this command "winnt32.exe /ox".
Change boot sequence in BIOS: A,C..
Boot from diskette number 1 and follow the instalation wizard.

Why use FDISK? The NT Install will allow you to create/delete partitions as needed.
