For more examples see the PracTeX Journal article by Andrew Mertz and William Slough, Beamer by Example (http://tug.org/pracjourn/2005-4/mertz/). For the complete documentation, in PCTeX 6 choose Help..LaTeX Packages..Document Styles..beamer and then click View Documentation; the main document is beameruserguide.pdf.
