The problem is that WinNT installs itself over FAT16 file system, and after that convert the partition (eventually) to NTFS. As we know the maximum size of FAT16 partition is 2 GB.
There is two solutions:
1. create fat partition with maximum size2GB (2048MB) and install WinNT. It is not regommended to create second partition, because you can do that much faster with NT Disk Administrator.
2. Delete All PArtitions. The installation procedure will ask from you to create new partitions.

A friend of mine once made an experiment: he create large NTFS Partition and tried to install NT over it. Teoretially it's possible, although I can't remember did he install NT or not...

right, my mistake.
The maximum size for a FAT partition under Windows NT is 4 GB (2 GB under MS-DOS).

so if you make the partition during the NT installation it can be 4GB. But of ypu make the partition before the installation under MS-DOS, itmust be below 2GB
