Create your presentation with the size you want, and the macro added.
File / Save as / PowerPoint Presentation.
Select Save As Type - PowerPoint Macro Enabled Presentation. *.pptm
Save it in C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates
(this is the folder for XP, but whatever is appropriate for your operating system).
It should default to the appropriate Template folder, so go ahead and use that.
The next time you open PowerPoint, the size and macro will be already there.
