I don't think so. The documentation for the utility says:

Quote We've taken the technology we developed for NTFSDOS Professional and NTFS for Windows 98 and made it possible for you to run the Windows 2000 version of CHKDSK within our run-time environment under NT 4.


The "within our run-time environment" part is vague, but it does clearly say "under NT 4," not DOS. It also says:

Quote No more booting out of NT 4 to check your NTFS 5 drives!


which clearly precludes rebooting to DOS.

In any case, when using NTFSCHK v1.0 on an NT 4.0sp6a system, I see:


% ntfschk c:\sbin\NTFSCHK\winxp_files f:
[...]
Could not lock C: for NTFSCHK: Access is denied.

Could not lock D: for NTFSCHK: Access is denied.

Could not lock F: for NTFSCHK: Access is denied.

No NTFS drives recognized. Exiting.


Which is puzzling, both for the error and the fact that it attempted to check all drives despite having specified only one drive on the command line.
