You may already know that can build a fully animated presentation or slide show using the interactive features in Quark Interactive Designer (or the Interactive Layout space in QuarkXPress 8).
But if all you want to do is build a quick slideshow, you can just lay out a bunch of pages the way you want them to look, export the layout in PDF format, then use Acrobat to set up the PDF to automatically play in full screen, page by page, with transitions. Even make it loop!
CreativeTechs has a very simple four-step tutorial on how to do just that, named Build an Acrobat PDF Slideshow.
