Use your dremel to put a notch in the head of the screw and use a flat head screwdriver. I've done that more time than I care to admit, works like a charm.

Heh, same here. I've decided that instead of becoming a Dremel Master I'm just going to get better quality screws (like tonysscrews.com). I found out the hard way that those RCScrewz are way too soft and not worth it.

Keep an eye on your drivers. The may round off over time. Thats when I replace the tips or grind them down.
