I have OO Impress but it's too slow (On my machine-celeron300, 96MB RAM) I don't need do modyfing presentations I only want to view them.

You are running Linux on 96 MBytes, and that's on the very low side for Linux. That is why larger applications take a long time in starting up. One up and running, it shouldn't be slow anymore. I have dualbooted Linux and Windows myself on a 128 MBytes and I found 128 MBytes to be a very minimum for Linux, compared to Windows ME at that time. Programs load slowly, but most apps run happily as long that there are not much more applications active. Having Mozilla and OOo up on the same time would already cause a lot of disk activity. As far as I know, the only software under Linux that can display PPT's near perfection is OOo. KPresent will also open ppt files, but don't have any expectations on what you see on screen, currently.

If you are using KOffice that impiles that you are using KDE.

This is by some accounts quite a resource hungry application and you might free up more memory by using one of the "lightweight" desktops such as Xfce.

The other thing to check is that you don't have too many services started by default as this might speed things up quite a bit.

Cheers,

Grant.
