Can't install NT4.0 in system partition on Windows 2000 Pro computer with Red Hat Linux

In a computer we've already installed Windows 2000 Professional and Red Hat Linux and are now try to install NT4.0 for some other purposes. In the partition, there are 4 logical drives . I tried to install NT4 in a drive with 9G bytes. But I couldn't do it because I think Windows 2000 Professional and NT4.0 are somehow replacing some systems files. Could you give me a good way to install NT4.0 in this machine please.

Windows NT cannot support a system partition larger than 7.8G bytes, which is most likely where most of the problem is. However, they do share some boot system files as well. Have you thought about something like Partition Magic or System Commander to assist in this situation. These tools can shuffle the OS boot files and partitions around to make such a configuration much easier.
