Hey everyone.

I'm planning on making a file sharing server for my home using NT 4.0. The system I'm planning on using is a Dell Optiplex GX110. It's a Pentium 3 500mhz with 512mb of SDRAM.

And after reading some guides online, I understand that I need to make a 2 gig Fat16 Partition.

Does this seem right?

You are really wasting your time with NT 4.0. Why don't you use Linux or Windows 2000 Pro? NT 4.0 doesn't even support FAT32 let alone NTFS.

NT 4.0 Supports (infact was the first to use) NTfs. the boot/system partion is best kept below 2GB (8GB with SP6) but the rest of the drives can be almost any size.
