No, I send it directly from within scribus.

Because thats the size the booklet should have :-) (not my idea)

where do you get these numbers from?
enlarging to A5?

The other things you write are not really a solution for me. Does this mean 
that psutils can not deal the situation?

It's quite funny, I already had this problem, and after a day or two of work, 
I gave up and did it with OpenOffice. OpenOffice has a "prospectus" print 
function, which perfectly does what I need. Why is that so difficult for 
scribus? And how do you professionals print books that are not standard-size?
