No. NEF files (7.8MB on a D1x) are larger because they store the original 12-bit camera sensor data in an essentially uncompressed form. JPEG files (~2MB on a D1x at full resolution) are substantially smaller because the camera stores the data as 8 bits and compresses it further. Lower resolutions are only available in JPEG, and create smaller files.

The same will be true on a D100, though until we get cameras, we can't know the exact file sizes.
