You can get a small screw extractor from Sears (for example) which you attach to your drill and it will allow you to just back the screw out. Its designed for stripped screw heads.

If you can get an appreciable hold of the screw you can try a diagonal cutting tool to grip the outside of the screw head. The longer tool the better (6"-8") to provide adequate torque.
