I want users to be able to open the file from the link on my webpage without having to save it to their computer and have the power point presentation [.PPS] go immediately to full screen mode and begin?

In PowerPoint instead of saving the file as a [.PPS] save it as web Page[.HTM or .HTML]. Then upload the folder and the file to the server. Then link to the [.HTM or .HTML] file

Are your users on PowerPoint 2007?  If so, this is the reason the PPS is prompting for dowload.  Save it as a PPSX file and make sure the mime settings are correct on your web server:
