Maybe you mean the "transaction log"?  In that case, making a backup of the database could help.  
If you have that often, then you can change the size of the transaction log, or make it grow automatically.

If the database is set to simple recovery model, you need more disk space to perform the delete and there's not really another answer.  Try freeing up space or adding another log file to the database on another drive where there is available space.

How to check the recovery model: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189272.aspx

If the database is set to full recovery model, then:

Set the database to simple recovery model
Perform your delete
Set it back to simple recovery model.
