You'll need to download the the CD image (.iso) from 
http://www.zenwalk.org to install the latest Zenwalk Linux 4.4.1 on your 
system.  Afterwards you should find the latest Scribus available on 
their mirrors using the update package, netpkg, included with the 
distro.  I've had wonderful results with both so far, Zenwalk & Scribus.
