I created a short list of passwords and saved in a Word 97 doc file and password protected the file. I've forgotten the password. How can I retrieve this file?

I know two companies doing crackers for these type of files:

http://www.accessdata.com/

and

http://www.crak.com/

Both companies say that they are able to crack password up to version 7 (and Word 97 is version 8 I believe)
