If using Hyper-V you can just tell it to use the old MAC address on that VM. I really doubt that Microsoft will mind you have downgrade rights and NT is that old that they would be silly too. Try Disk to VHD on it, the one thing to consider though is that you would need to manage the NT server via RDP as the integration toold for hyper-V are really limited for stuff like mouse drivers and will only go back to 2003 SP2 or above.

I thought I'd give you chaps an update
I installed HyperV and used a couple of methods to get my old server onto the HyperV one.
And, to be honest, it's a bit clunky.. Yes, even for NT4
The no mouse thing I can live with.
My big issue is the NIC.
I've followed the various guides online and I can now PING my emulated server by IP address.
My issue, however, is WINS. Which is what's needed for our AutoCAD to work since its based on host name.
Last week, I had HyperV setup and if I went to a real workstation, I could:
PING 10.ip1.ip2.ip3 - reply
PING servername - reply
However, at the tail end of last week I got a call saying that AutoCAD wasn't working because it couldn't get a licence.
On the same real workstation..
PING 10.ip1.ip2.ip3 - reply
PING servername - host unknown
I remote into the 2008 server running HyperV and I can see the emulated NT server is still running.
Reboot the emulated server. Still not able to resolve host name.
Shut down the emulated server - I can now resolve the host name.
And it happened again today. Which makes it a bit less reliable than I'd like!
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Is the old server still connected? Two mac's on one network could cause problems

No, it's definitely off - good suggestion, though.

Use pfdavadmin and change default to none?

Anyway, the nice bods in our network team kindly created a static WINS entry so it's all good.
Thanks again for the replies, folks.
