Thank you for your help

I was able to create the poster as I wanted (except the background). These are
the steps I took:
1- with pdfnup I created a single file with all the slides of my presentation.
2- with the dc a0poster I created the title
3- in the previous file I inserted:
\includegraphics[width=80cm,keepaspectratio=T,bb=0 66 595 778]{teste}
to insert the file teste.pdf
4- I cannot use \includepdf because it inserts a new page
5- pdflatex, and I have the poster.

However, I was not able to set the background color. The point is that:
1- when I set the background color to black, the slides inserted became also
black, but I can see the other colors.
2- thus, in the presentation I set one slide with background color to white and
remaining to red.
3- the final result is that black overlaps the white. So the white is not really

Do you have any suggestion regarding the background?
Thanks in advance for your help.

I hope that you can give me some feedback about creating a poster from slides.
This is the situation:
1- I created a set of slides with latex and prosper
2- I have the slides available in .ps  and .pdf
3- I would like to create a poster (a0) based on the montage of the slides I have produced. Is that possible? Is there any automatic way of doing this?
4- What is the best approach:
4.1- use montage to put all slides in one a0 poster
4.1.1- use psnup
4.2- use a0poster dc and just copy the information from my latex prosper file to a0poster file
4.3- use other software 
5- I want a background color

Thanks in advance for your help.
