From the NT CD type:  winnt /ox.  Or from another NT machine! Have the 3 disks ready!

Running from the command promt did not work for me, gave an error message.

Clicking on WINNT did produce results.  OPTIONS can be set to product BOOT FLOPPIES only (no local source).

The correct syntax for making boot floppies under NT =

Winnt32 /ox (32 because you are already running NT, Winnt is the msdos based setup exe, so no luck trying it under NT, error message as you encountered)

S.A.P.

But if you just need a bootable floppy;
format your floppy with NT
With Explorer copy from C:\
Boot.ini
Command.com
Io.sys
Msdos.sys
Ntdetect.com
Ntldr
That's all you need.
