It depends on how the slideshow is constructed.

If it is done with Javascript and display="none" fiddling, then
you are out of luck (unless your javascript looks at the document
URL and does the appropriate fiddling at document load).

If it is done with SMIL animation (on display or opacity or something)
then you're also out of luck.

If it is done with SVG 1.2 <page> elements, then you're out of
luck (for now :). I think we should add something to the <page>
behaviour which says that if the UA references a fragment/id 
inside a <page> then you flip pages. That would probably work
and probably make sense (of course, I've invested all of 30
seconds brain power into this idea so far).
