SharePoint Server 2007 Config Log is Very Large

I am running SharePoint 2007 and have just noticed that my SharePoint_Config_log.LDF file is 2.22GB, I have several other LDF files which are large as well and would like to see about getting those file sizes under control to restore some disk space to the OS.

So I am running SharePoint 2007 on a W2k8 x64 using SQL Server 2005. Anyone know how to get rid of those logged entries so I can have my space back?

LDF files are the transaction log files for SQL server. I would not delete it directly, but rather..

1. Right click WSS_Content and choose Tasks -> Backup
2. Select backtup type "Transaction log", select destination backup file and click Ok.
3. After backing up the DB, right click WSS_Content and choose Tasks -> Shrink -> Files
4. Select the type log and shrink action (eg release unused space)
