Yesterday I got the following NT4 blue screen error:
*** Stop: 0x00000023 (0x000F0094, 0xF743BB10, 0xF743B94C, 0x80135BFE)
FAT_FILE_SYSTEM ***
Address 80135bfe has base at 80100000 - ntoskrnl.exe

CPUID: GenuineIntel 6.5.2  irql=1f Sysver 0xf0000565

This is what I found on the Knowledge Base of September. The article was was written for NT 3.51... May be it helps.

Stop 0x23 Errors in Fastfat.sys
Last reviewed: March 24, 1997
Article ID: Q142628  
The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 3.51
Microsoft Windows NT Server version 3.51
SYMPTOMS
A STOP 0x00000023 FAT_FILE_SYSTEM error message occurs when a floppy disk is inserted or removed while Windows NT 3.51 is in the process of shutting down.



CAUSE
The version of Fastfat.sys distributed with Windows NT 3.51 has the potential of showing the above symptom. There is a very small window of time while Windows NT is mounting a FAT volume, such as a floppy disk, during which a request to determine whether or not it is safe to unmount the same volume may cause the above error.



WORKAROUND
Install Service Pack 5 or later for Windows NT 3.51.



STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT version 3.51. This problem was corrected in the latest Windows NT 3.51 U.S. Service Pack. For information on obtaining the Service Pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (without the spaces):

Try reintalling winNT with service pack 4, or just reloading NT.

My technet disk reported the following for this exact error in NT4 (paraphrased to not breach copyright):

NT4 can create your error when you have attempted to read a corrupted floppy disk from Windows Explorer or My COmputer.

Reason
 
The floppy disk has a long file name entry which NT can't handle because it only likes FAT16 (8character dot 3chearacter extension filenames). Microsoft say they didn't allow Service Pack 3 or earlier check for this error, so it blue screens - nice eh?.

So you are supposed to Run CHKDSK against floppy disk from a command prompt before attempting to view the disk contents in Explorer. MS want you to get a fix of FastFat.sys which should be on their website. You must install Service Pack 3 prior to the fix ore else use a later service pack. If a later service pack is used, I'll use service pack 4A as 4 has a major security bug.
