Murray, One way is to modify the actual palette.

(i) Make a copy of the CreateSlideShow.nb notebook from the the
(ii) Open up the notebook in a texteditor
(iii) Copy the code for New Slide button (it begins about Line 241 with

{ButtonBox[\(New\ Slide\),
                NotebookWrite[ .......
 and past it after the precedding code for New Slide.
(iv) Save the modified notebook. Now when you open up the modified
CreateSlideShow.nb you should see an additional buttoon function called
New Slide
(v) Now simply modify the code that yopu inserted in step (iii) where
it reads 'Cell[ "New Slide", "Section"]' to read Cell[ "New
Subsection", "Subsection"]'
(vi) You can also modify the heading for the button by changing
ButtonBox[\(New\ Slide\),... to ButtonBox[\(New\ Subsection\)....

(vii) If you interrogate the code you will also see that various
stylesheets are embedded. Thus you can also modify the possible
stylesheets you want to use with your slideshow palette.

Hope this helps,
