1. Check Automatic Text Frames when you create your document
2. Import your text in the first page. You'll see a red crossed 
square at bottom right telling you there is more text than the frame 
can handle.
3. From the Page>Insert Page menu, create as many pages as you think 
you need: your text will automatically flow in these newly created 
pages. You won't need to link each page one by one.

Scribus doesn't create pages automatically to accomodate the extra 
text. You have to tell it.
