If you want to store the file on your iPad then you will need an app on your iPad that supports that type of file (which applies to any sort of file). One app that does support it is Documents To Go (which I havn't got though I've seen it recommended by other people) :
'normal' version : http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/documents-to-go-office-suite/id317117961?mt=8
'premium' version : http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/documents-to-go-premium-office/id317107309?mt=8
"DocsToGo Premium” lets you:
• EDIT, CREATE & VIEW Word, Excel & PowerPoint files (Office 2007/2008/2010)
• View PDF, iWork & other files
• iPad/iPhone 4/iOS 4: Send & receive attachments using the built-in Mail app
• Access, view, edit & sync supported files stored in Google Docs, Dropbox, Box.net, iDisk & SugarSync
• Free desktop app (Win & Mac) with 2way file sync (WIFI required)
Help for transferring files to and from Documents To Go is here http://support.dataviz.com/support.srch?docid=14497&pid=198

Here's one way to do this.
First, you would want to install Keynote (which can open Powerpoint files) on your iPad from the App store. There are some other Apps which can do this as well (e.g., Goodreader). You can then email yourself the Powerpoint presentation. When you get the email and you touch the icon for the Powerpoint presentation in the email you will be given a choice of Apps in which to open the document.

Hi Him. I have Keynote on the Ipad but the presentation is too large to email.

Give Dropbox a try. Get (if you don't have) DropBox on your computer and on your iPad. Use Dropbox to transfer the file. Upload to dropbox on your computer. Then go open dropbox on your iPad. There you will see the file. Hit the download button and it will ask you what you want to open it in on your iPad. If you have Keynote it will be one of the options. Hit that and the Powerpoint will open in Keynote. One thing to keep in mind is that if it's a very very large presentation and you don't have a lot of storage space on your iPad it might not open.

Do you have a cloud account like Dropbox or Sugarsync? Put the file there and use an app that can pull documents in from the cloud.
