QUESTION, URGENT: PowerPoint 4.0 presentation to PowerPoint 97

Subject: QUESTION, URGENT: PowerPoint 4.0 presentation to PowerPoint 97

I created a presentation in PowerPoint 4.0. I have transferred the file to
another PC, and want to open the file using PowerPoint 97 (both Windows 95
platform). I am receiving an error message of "Cannot translate file".
Shouldn't the newer version of PowerPoint be able to open a presentation
created using the older version? This is making me want to tear my hair out!
I need to have this presentation ready in an hour! If anyone has any
ideas/solutions, PLEASE email me ASAP.

Thank you, thank you, thank you ...
