I originally bought a PDA to keep up with tech documentation.  Here is 
what I do:

I usually use OpenOffice.org to convert Word, etc to HTML format, and 
then I use jPluck to convert to Plucker format.  Plucker format is read 
by fbReader, easily. 

Keep in mind, it may seem as I have a vested interest in OOo, see my 
sig, but as long as you can convert the Doc to HTML, then you should be 
in business using jPluck.

Also, doing this means the links are still kept with the document, if 
they are there.
