I had the same thing happen. I had a 100+ page manual that the customer
insisted be written in Word 97 so they could update the document later.
I wrote it, had screen shots of every button, plus illustrated examples
on most of the pages (120+ graphics). I was finishing the final print
out, when the programmer said that the last page printed with a red X on
the graphic, and could I print it again. I lost every image in that
document. It was just a good thing I had a backup, or I would have spent
another week replacing everything.

Allegedly, this problem was fixed in one of the service packs. I
honestly can't tell you if it has been or not. I don't use word for long
documents like that any more.
