Another way:

Install the 2005 version using i-installer. There are some problems  
in the 2004 version for doing the process described below.

Using tex4ht convert your document to HTML:

htlatex filename

Open in Word or TextEdit or Pages.

After opening in TextEdit or Pages you can save as a Word document.

You can also go from (La)TeX to Open Office to Word by using tex4ht  
to convert to Open Office.

I have found TeX to HTML to Word to be very effective. I use a config  
file that converts to simple html 3.2 or 4.01, depending on the  
command line option.
