You need to click Arrange All. Where that is depends on which version of PPT, but it's generally on the View tab (PPT 2007 and 2010) or on the Window menu (PPT 2003 and prior).

Only PPT 2010 is SDI and will let you have two instances, each with their own ribbons and QAT. All others are MDI -- which means you'll get one interface but multiple presentation windows open within that interface.

By the way, if you have two PPT files open, hitting Arrange All still arranges the two files side by side so you can compare them.
