 HOWTO: Transactionless UPDATE on a large table

I have a very large table (2GB and 10m records) and periodically
periodcially perform an UPDATE command which nulls out serveral columns.
This procedure takes what I think is an unreasonable amount of time (3+
hours) to complete and twice that amount of time of it aborts and must
recover. This is only a development server used for testing purposes and
complete recovery is not needed in the event of an abort. Is there a method
to disable transaction logging during this operation?
