Exchange 2003 Logs

Hi
I need to run a compression program on Exchange. This generates a lot of logs, and I'm short of space. Is is possible to have Exchange put the logs onto a network drive? Or can only local drives be used for the logs?
Thanks

Only local drives can be used and the Exchange System Manager will not let you choose removeable/network drives.

You can however turn on Circular logging whilst you run this process if it's only a temporary thing?
You can do this by following this guide here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314605

Even mapped network drives? That is, its mapped to Z.
I guess I could backup, then use Circular logging.

No, even mapped network drives will not work.
Circular logging is your best bet.

But once your finished make sure you turn it off.
