This artlce discusses the physical structure of transaction log files in SQL Server 7.0 and why it may be difficult to shrink them. It also covers an undocumented DBCC LOGINFO command and offers a stored procedure to automate transaction log shrinking. Very good article on the how and why of log shrinking which can be one of the more painful tasks for an administrator.
