I want to place a Microsoft Powerpoint presentation on a CD that runs on Mac computers.  

I don't want to force users to download this:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e25cb1e5-209c-4a58-b283-23e84b616477

It would be better if the Powerpoint presentation was automatically launched without users having to download anything.

Can the PowerPoint 98 Viewer for Macintosh computers be made "portable" so it can be run directly from the CD without a need for being installed?

I do not want to save this as a movie.  I want the navigation within the Powerpoint to remain working.

I decided that it would be acceptable (although not preferable) to force users to install the viewer...
