You can't directly view PP files in any web browser without either a plugin/extension installed on the browser or Powerpoint being installed on the viewing computer.  See here:

To display PP in the browser without such plugins, you must offer an indirect view of the PP content via server-side processing of the PP file to convert it to something more browser-standard (images, Flash, etc).  This is what Google did a couple of years ago for PP files in GMail.  GMail processes PP files server-side and displays individual pages within a Flash viewer.  See here:

What you want to do is not (yet) trivial.  From what I know it'll either take some manual effort or a third party product.
 Third-party product:
Hope that helps -- good luck!

you can take two paths

1) place it on the site and when a visitor attemtps to view it - if they have PP then it runs if they don't then it should attempt to download the PP viewer to the visitors computer.

2) save the presentation as a web page - this will allow you to run it as a web page(s) in an iframe module .

When you save it make a new folder to save it in - then ftp that folder to your site and place it in the dnn root directory. Link to it by a full url in the iframe or you could use a link module and open it in a new window.
