Is it totally out of the question to make the presentation entirely 
Mathematica-based?  After all, Mathematica has a Slide Show mode, and 
you can import graphics into Mathematica.

Of course you won't have access to all the fades, dissolves, and other 
distracting graphics effects junk that Power Point facilitates!  (See 
Tufte's little pamphlet about the evils of Power Point.)
