Log files are cleaned up when de database is backupped.
You can also delete the log-entry's yourself:
- Through SQL-Enterprise Manager, just double-click the database and there is a button 'Truncate log' or something.
- Or you can issue the 'DUMP TRANSACTION WITH TRUNCATE_ONLY' command

You can also make SQL-Server delete the log-entrys as soon as they are written to the database, by issuing the SQL-command:

EXEC sp_dboption databasename 'trunc. log on chpt.',true

If you do this and still get the error, then you have to make the expand the logspace of your database.
