If you want it just quick an dirty there is no need to dive into  
anything. It is always very easy to present any series of pdf-files  
via Apple's Preview.app and its presentation mode. As long as you  
follow the rules (big letters, very few words per page/slide), you  
can even use Apple's TextEdit or MS Word (sorry about the m-word).

Good luck!
