Partition size - WINNT Workstation

I have a 6GB IDE drive on which I want to install NT workstation.  I can create a partition using all the space, but cannot format the partition.  Setup reports that it is too large.  Is there a limitation on volume or partition size?  I want to format as NTFS, however I get the same error whether I try FAT or NTFS.

Any suggestions?

Yes there is a limitation on the bootable partition.  For Fat it's 2gig
And for NTFS it's 4gig
After you make the bottable partition and then the other partitions can be larger than the
limitations
