How to get a 7.8GB boot partition?

I would like to setup my NT server which has 5 18.2 GB SCSI-3 drives, to have a RAID 1 partition of 7.8GB and the other 3 drives to make up a RAID 5 array. THe problem is that I cannot get the manual or the assistance method of setup to go past 4096GB for the boot partition, Does anyone know how to do this?

Please email me at eziots@lifespan.org if you have any suggestions

First issue - you have to run Smartstart in Manual mode. Assisted will not be able to do this. You must also choose to use NTFS from the beginning as FAT is limited to 4GB (which is why Smartstart can't do it itself). Best to select custom setup (F6 key during NT Detect) when booting to NT setup.
