There are (at least) 3 restrictions in MyISAM's FULLTEXT:
* ft_min_word_len = 4
* stopwords
* not indexing any word that occurs in more than 50% of the rows.

You are asking about the first (but you may be tripping over stopwords, too.) You can change that setting in my.cnf (my.ini), however you need to do these to have it take effect:
1. restart mysqld
2. rebuild any existing FULLTEXT indexes (else they will continue to use "4"): This should suffice (for each table): ALTER TABLE foo ENGINE=MyISAM;
