Backing up and truncating the transaction log is detailed, quite extensively,
in both the SQL Server 2000 and 2005 documentation. You just need to RTM.

:  I hope this is a question for thelist.
:  Our transaction log file has reach 11GB and our server is about 600 MB
:  from filling up, thus halting business. How can I truncate, shrink, or
:  otherwise reduce the filesize? Is it possible to just create a new
:  transaction log, and move the 11GB version off to some separate
:  storage as a back up?
