    Yes, just set up your slide show and add the soundtrack.
    Here's how to add sound:

    http://www.uhd.edu/computing/ttlc/training/Training_Materials/PPT_MM_Sounds_HO.pdf

    That's an Adobe PDF format page, what you want to know starts at the bottom of page 3.
    The steps may vary slightly depending on your version.
    You might also find guidance in Power Point's Help.

    I've done this before, but I haven't installed Office since my last format so I can't verify the steps. Be aware that adding a soundtrack can increase the file size of your presentation quite a bit. Make sure to check that if you're emailing to some one with a dial-up connection.

    Here is how you do it.
    Create a folder with all the Pictures and the song that you want to put into this powerpoint.
    The pictures do not need to be in this folder because they are embedded into the powerpoint not linked by file.
    The song however does need to be.
    go to the slide you want the song to start on and go to insert movies and sounds and then click sound from file.
    "THE SONG MUST BE IN THE FOLDER BEFORE YOU ADD IT TO THE POWERPOINT"
    Go to the folder you made that has the song and the powerpoint file in it together, and select the song.
    Click whether you want it to start automatically or on click. "I recomend automatically if you are a Powerpoint animating newbie." This is just to save you the hassel of going through timing it out.

    GOOD LUCK
