How can I create a PowerPoint presentation that looks like it's from 1994?

How should I go about preparing a historically accurate / vintage PowerPoint presentation? I would like to conform to the abilities and (potentially nightmarish) limitations of, say, PowerPoint 4.0 (1994).

Okay, help. This is practically archaeology at this point. And I would really like to show these presentations on something appropriate, like a 486 laptop. Any tips on general strategy? Or specifics? Are there Windows 3.1 emulators? Where would I even find PowerPoint 4.0? Or a functioning 486 laptop?
Or should I just give up on using historically accurate materials, use contemporary tools, and hunt down as many 'sample decks' from the time period as possible to get a sense for what they looked like? Where would I even find those?
