Grab the magic wand tool in photoshop, tolerance around 1, click on the white area, hit delete. Repeat for each enclosed section. Fine tune with the eraser and history brush.

make a new image with transparent background, paste the logo on it. then you can select most of the white with the magic wand tool and hit the delete key on your keyboard. for the areas the magic wand missed, i just used the eraser. save it as a gif and it will keep the transparency

Wow this was really helpful, I've been trying to get this right for ages!

I don't use the delete key though. I just select the background with the magic wand tool, then invert the selection, copy, paste in the new image..and voila. Works for me!

Another way to select is to use the color selector. Since you want just the whole and colors in your image are pretty distinct, color selector works pretty well and you can select all of the white areas in one go.
