However, you could export the PPT as a QT movie

and then convert the .mov file to DVD format.

I guess I'll just hook up a laptop to the tv like we did last year - unless there is another slideshow program that would do what I am wanting to do. I really don't need much of the ppt features, just a slideshow of an album.

Slideshow on DVD? That's a horse of another color. Try

This is not a PPT feature.

No powerpoint system allows what you asked to be done. You can "play" the powerpoint and record the results and create a movie of said play but you did not ask for that.

What you asked for is not possible today.
