Fellow listers,

I am a complete newbie on LaTeX for presentations and would finally
like to leave the womb of Powerpoint.  I read the Presentation
Material chapter from the Guide To LaTeX 4th edition but still remain
a little confused.  If I wish to create .pdf slide shows and will use
basic drawing diagrams (boxes, arrows, etc.) what is the best way to
proceed in terms of packages/classes?  Do I need to identify what
drawing tools I will use before choosing a presentation method?  Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciated before I begin trying to
master something that may be a blind alley down the road.  Thanks very
