    I ran Scribus until it quit by itself. I looked into the activity  
monitor, and I saw Scribus was looking for fonts like it should, but  
I do have two very large hard drives on the computer (120G and 280G).  
Could this be holding up the process to the point that it just quits?  
Is there any way to direct Scribus to just go to one spot to get the
