Thanks for that too. Just one thing, the example in 
http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/How_to_make_a_booklet shows how to make a 
booklet from multiple A4 sheets, but what do I have to change if the pages 
are already in A5 format?

As the wiki article says, read the man page...

For putting 2 a5s onto a4s, you should be able to use the command (modifying the example):

psnup -2 -pa5 -Pa4 fileA.ps fileB.ps

which shows the alternative way of indicating page sizes -- -p for input size, -P for output size.

I haven't tried this, so let me know if it doesn't work.
