I have no idea about a "Live CD", but installing Scribus from an RPM
is simple on a RedHat-based real Linux installation.  Even compiling
from source is a nothing-to-it proposition on Fedora Core 3. 
Configure, compile, install, done deal.  Start composing.

Friends (and clients) of mine create a 40--page newspaper, a 28-page
newspaper, and a 2-page "coffee chat paper".  Every week, on Monday,
Wednesday, and Friday.  Using Scribus.  The 40-page paper is printed
on a Heidelberg web press.  The other papers are printed on 4

Does that answer your question?
