Dave -

With color slide film the most important consideration is the light used to 
illuminate the prints.  If you are using tungsten light, you will get a 
yellow cast to the slide.  If you want to exactly reproduce the color of 
your print, you have to use lighting to match the film.  Tungsten film, 
usually with a T in the name can be used with tungsten lights.  For normal 
slide film, you will need to use an adjusted light - usually blue.  There 
are so many variations in lights and films you just have to experiment and 
decide what you like.  What I am using currently is Fuji-64T Type II, 
Tungsten film with a Beseler copy stand and tungsten lights.

Hope this helps.
