You need two things to save a file as the default template.

1. you must name the file blank.pot (or blank.potx for 2007)
2. you must put it in the right place

When you choose File | Save As and select PowerPoint Template, PPT automatically takes you to the appropriate folder to save in. You just have to name the file Blank.

Here are more instrux:
Create a default "blank" presentation with your own defaults
