Take a look here for something that can help:

Outlook 98 & 2000 can directly import from the WAB while Outlook 97 needs external help.

I believe you can also export to a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file, which Outlook 97 will be able to work with.  [Note: I think distribution lists gets left behind. :(]
