I am, slide by slide, saving the images into photoshop, optimiziing them and saving either as a .jpg or .gif. I'll then Import them into Flash, I intend to have to type a lot for all the text. Then make the image of an arrow they use into a button in Flash, which will funtion to jump between slides/scenes - tedious - yes - but it should, someday, get the job done. I was only wondering if there's a secret I need to know... :-)

No That would be one of the only ways however this may cause the flash file to be huge and processor heavy.

Good Luck

Naw man, here is the way:

You just save as a windows metafile (a kind of windows vector) then you have all of your content. This imports nicely into flash.  You then just need to re-do all of your animation attached to those files, decide if you want onCLick or timed, etc.  Use LoadMovie or jump to a frame.  It doesn't matter.

That should do it for you.

pmsflash,
         Unfortunetly when you export as a Windows Meta file, you get only a snapshot of the content (all put together and melded into one file.) Yes it saves each "slide" seperatly, but will not seperate the 1/2 dozen other elements which moved during the slide show. Now I have ten slides with all the content on each slide, but no way to seperate the content from the background in order to make it move again.

PS - In the time it has taken to try to answer this, I have created a new .SWF and .FLA from the ground up, containing over 150 layers and 600 frames. I am done. I will leave this question open for a week longer, if anyone has an easier solution (so I can give up those points) although the alternative is to have support null this question.

Thanks for your efforts.
