You can Start with the NT 4.0 Version and delete the NT 5 Beta Dirs, but your system is converted to a new Version of NTFS, this is not possible to change (as far I know).
And with the new NTFS, NT 4.0 have big probs...

It's not just that. NT5 installs also an own boot loader and you can only get rid of it by reinstalling (reparing) NT4.

Change BIOS so that it boots to CDROM, put NT4 CD in, reboot. Direct NT 4 to load to disk/partition that NT 5/Win 2000 is on, let NT 4 format that disk/partition, then terminate install when it's done.

ADDENDUM:

You'll probably have edit boot.ini, it's in primary drive's root directory. Can be done from DOS prompt on in NT. From DOS prompt you must do 'attrib boot.ini -r' first to edit, then '+r' when done. or in (R) click Properties menu in NT.
