When I need to include an EPS file in a computer presentation, I use the GIMP to convert it to a JPEG or (more often) a PNG (so that there's no compression artifacts, as usually I'm importing line diagrams and such). For instance, see: http://brahms.phy.vanderbilt.edu/deepsearch/hstpaper/inde... ... there I have the EPS files of the figures, and PNG files converted and anti-aliased with the Gimp for use on a 1024x768 presentation screen.
I've also used "ps2fig" followed by "fig2sxd" so that I can *import* the EPS file and edit it further in OOo. It would be nice if OOo could import EPS files directly, but these two programs let you work aroud the problem.
As for equations, some simple equations I do in OOo impress, but complicated ones I do in LaTeX and use ImageMagik to convert to something I'd want to import into OOo:
