Default Transparent backgrounds in Photoshop files

Someone gave me a PSD file (CMYK photo) with a transparent background, and I need to get it into Quark with that transparent background intact.

It's got that gray and white checkerboard background, but when imported into Quark the background's white.

I assume that the only way to do this is by creating a clipping path, but figured I'd ask just in case there's some new trick I don't know about.

I'm using Photoshop CS (CS2 is on order but may not arrive in time for this job). I can create a clipping path, but am pressed for time. I am also annoyed because the original photo did have a clipping path, but I was only given a newer (and cropped) version without a clipping path. And of course it's a holiday weekend, I can't reach anyone who might have the original photo, and it's a rush job due Tuesday morning.
