Screen layout in Powerpoint 2003

In Powerpoint 97 the customized screen layout was saved in a ".pcb" file.  For Excel it went into an ".xlb" file.  Excel 2003 reads the old xlb file and adopts the old 97 screen layout.  Powerpoint 2003 will have nothing to do with the 97 pcb file. So I suppose we'll have to restart our screen layout customization from scratch in PPT 2003?  But once that's done where is it saved?  And how can it be transferred to other pcs?  Thank you very much.

what do you mean by screen layout?

if you mean design template, all custom templates are saved by default in the folder
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates

you can look into that folder.
