what kind of screws? if they're phillips you might try an impact driver (a screwdriver where you slam on it with a hammer causing it to both apply a lot of pressure and turn the screw at the same time). If you can get a pair of vice grips around it you might try 'hot-wrenching' it (use a propane torch on it to get it hot, then put the vice grips on and turn it). if you cant get any of these to work you can try and drill it out.. but that should be a last resort i think.
