I am using PowerPoint's Save as HTML to repurpose some slide shows for our
Web site.
Usually, it goes swimmingly, but this message pops while trying to save some
of the shows:

Microsoft PowerPoint
PowerPoint couldn't save some of the HTML files.
Do you wish to delete the files that were generated by Save As HTML?
Yes No

If I do not delete, I get an incomplete slide show.

Can anyone point to any pointers or resources I can use in debugging this

Resources tried: The PowerPoint Help file has not helped me. Microsoft's
Knowledgebase has not yielded any relevant knowledge to me. Google searches
have not availed.
One hint indicated I need a lot of RAM for this operation, but that doesn't
seem to be the problem.
Techie details: PowerPoint 97 on Windows 98, running on a 400 MHz Pentium II
with 128 MB RAM and at least 3 GB of free hard disk space.
