In logistic regression the dependent variable is binary. The independent variables can be continuous or categorical (properly coded). There is no need to transform the dependent variable (and in fact no transformation will do any good regardless). 

I highly suggest reading up on logistic regression in, say, John Fox, Applied Regression Analysis and Generalized Linear Models, Second Edition (Sage, 2008).
