I believe you need to boot from the "ARCLOADER" floppy, the image of
which is available on the IBM FTP sites linked from my web page.  I've
never tried NT on TP but lots of people used to do it.

What you'd do if you don't have a FD drive is anyone's guess.  It might
not be possible.  Wait to see if anyone else here knows any tricks.

Good luck!
