Use the "fragile" option for slides that contain verbatims:

\frametitle{This slides contains verbatim text}
_iNum = 0;

My personal preference is the listings package, but there are lots of other
alternatives. Don't forget you'll need the "fragile" option too if a slide
contains the lstlisting environment (from the listings package).
