Hi Andrew,

if you're into LaTeX, then prosper  
( might be an option. If  
you're into XML and don't need no fancy effects, then DocBook Slides  
( may  
come in handy. Also, if you don't need any effects or transitions you  
may consider any tool that creates multi-page PDF files. Adobe Reader  
has a full-screen option which turns it into a presentation viewer.
