If I have a vm running on my XP box, can I have one monitor that I use to
see the host OS and another that would just show the power point running on
the guest?

Yes. You can have the guest full-screen on one monitor and have your
other monitor showing the host OS.

You can't have 2 monitors for the guest OS though.

Thanks Steve. Where can I find documentation to do this?

There's no configuration to run the guest OS on one VM and have the
host OS on the 2nd...unless you mean you want to run Powerpoint on the
host OS and have the same PowerPoint slides show up on the guest OS,
which you can't. The guest is no different than a separate computer,
if you can't do it with 2 real computers, you can't do it with a VM.
