Default Word 97 document falls apart when opened in Word 2003 on XP - please help

I've been sent a 200 page manual created with Word 97. Tons of graphics
of application buttons, hyperlinks and such. When it's opened in Word
2003 on XP, a large amount of cleanup is needed.

Is there anything that can be done in Word 97 to open cleaner in Word
2003? Or, are there settings to make in Word 2003 before opening the
document?

Many thanks,
Charlie

It is likely a different printer driver causing the problem, not the change
in version of Word.
