The old Exchange 2007 had support for remote document management right in the OWA console, but Exchange 2010 doesn't come with that.  How can I set it up so users can access some Word Documents.  Do I need to use Share Point?

Yeah, they discontinued the Direct File Access feature in OWA I'm afraid. To be honest, OWA wasn't a suitable console to deliver that sort of service.

Sharepoint would be the obvious Microsoft solution to the problem. You'd need to put the files into a Sharepoint document library and then users log in and check them out as and when they need to work on them.

If users just need to download and read the files, then a standard web server running IIS can do that.

If these are files in their My Documents folder, then you need a solution in IIS or some other web server which will interrogate the file server and allow them to work with their documents therein. There are many, many such solutions available either for free or purchase on the Internet. There's also Microsoft's WebDAV feature to consider.
