That really doesn't work too well if you're drawing a lot of current, or something that has a lot of variable current draw. It's a lot easier to use a linear voltage regulator, something like an LM7805 (lots of companies make these--National Semiconductor, Texas Instruments, On Semiconductor, etc. etc.) They're cheap and pretty reliable.
