Well, this file is only called 'binit.dat', but it's content is written in plain ASCII txt-format. So, if you didn't save it as a doc-file (which would contain additional information generated by MS Word), you can probably solve this by simply renaming the file.
For further editing I'd propose to use Notepad instead of Word, or any other text editor.

Also note that changing most tos files to word format doesn't really seem to affect the game in any way.

Corrin, would you tell me which file can be changed to another format without affecting the game. And please, don't point at the help files. ;)

I could easily be mistaken, but I sem to remember accidentally changing all my .tos files and my binit.dat file to word format at one point, and still being able to play. I may be wrong.
