you need to use UPDATETEXT or WRITETEXT for that

Updatetext
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189466.aspx

Writetext
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms186838.aspx

Also please note one more thing

text,ntext etc is deprecated so you should not be using them for any new development. you should be using BLOB types like varchar(max),nvarchar(max) instead
