There are no dumb questions, only dumb operating systems. <Tee hee,
reference to the Old School thread. Wasn't DOS based on RDOS, "really dumb
operating system"? Or is that a myth?>

Anyway, in PowerPoint, select "View" from the toolbar, and choose "Notes
Page." "Notes Pages" is also an option in the print menu, under "Print
what:" that you can use for your handouts.
