Annotating slides during presentations

I'm teaching in large classrooms where the blackboard isn't visible from the back rows. I'd like to draw and write on slides while they are being projected.

Screenshots in powerpoint don't render

When I take screenshots on my mac and paste them into a power point presentation I can see them, but anyone I send the ppt to gets no pictures, just a quicktime decompressor message. Images do render to a pdf. This never used to happen to me on my last powerbook. Are there settings that I can change? Thanks

flash powerpoint

I have a Flash animation (which ends in .app) that I'd like to use in Power Point (it's PP x for Mc) on a MacBook Pro. But I can't seem to find any way to do it. Has anyone had any luck with this, or know of any converters, or know some other way to link to the animation via PowerPoint but not actually as a slide?
