HT3964 When I start my MacBook Pro, I get a message that says "your startup disk is full you need more space by deleting files."  It then gives a box to check ok.  After about 30 seconds, it fades to a gray screen and I can't do anything. I've tried everything!

When I start my MacBook Pro, I get a message that says my startup disk is full and I have to delete some files.  It then gives a box to check ok.  After about 30 seconds, it just fades to a gray screen and I can't do anything.  I have tried to restart it, tried the PRAM thing, and everything else with no luck.  Ay ideas on how I can get in so I can delete some files?
