NT keeps track of several different kinds of events, to let you know that there might be a problem with your system.  When you get enough of these events, the log file that holds them all gets full.  Then, the system warns you that the log file is full.  

To see exactly what the issues are, do this:  Goto Start, Programs, Administrative Tools, Event Viewer.  There are 3 different logs, selectable from the Log menu item--Security, System, and Application.  See which on of them looks very full.  If you double click on an item, you can get more details about it, but most of the time it's hard to tell what it really means, unless the program causing it is obvious.

If you don't care about what's there, select Log, Clear All Events, and you will get rid of them, until enough accumulate to fill it up again.

Also, you can increase the size of the log file, to have it happen less frequently.  To do this, select Log, Log Settings, and change the size.

Really, you shouldn't get this happening very often--probably some piece of hardware isn't setup correctly, and when NT tries to initialize it during bootup, it is reporting errors in the log.
