the same question was addressed by way of creating two ppt files and using the first one to link the second one.

is there a nicer/clean way to handle this? e.g., still put all slides into one ppt file and allow the page number start as "1" from 3rd page?

Nope, you'll have to add them by hand or use your existing work around.

Nice!  Missed that one.

In PowerPoint 2007, Click on Insert, Header/Footer, check the Slide Number box, click Apply to All.  Then click on Design, Page Setup and change the number to 3.

?  Your screenshot is PowerPoint 2003.  You get to the dialog window slightly differently in PowerPoint 2007.  Since strider 711 didn't specify which version of PowerPoint, I was simply clarifying the steps for version 2007.
However, I now see that this isn't the answer to strider 711's problem.  They want to numbering to start with 1 on slide 3, not the other way around.

So, strider 711 as I said before, you'll have to do it manually.  
Or you can use this VB routine (macro) to do it for you: http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00853.htm
