Do you have any other NT box up & running? If so, put the drive in that
machine and format it as a 4G NTFS partition. Then put it back in the other
machine and boot from the NT install floppies. When it asks which partition
to install on, specify the NTFS partition and you're set.
The 2G issue is because NT first format the drive in FAT16, and transforms
it later into NTFS. Preformating the partition in NTFS will go around that
