In Scribus directly, its not possible. But you can do the following:

- Create your equation in OpenOffice.
- Right click on it and export it to MathML
- Use JEuclid, a MathML implementation in Java, to convert the 
MathML-File into SVG, PostScript or whatever
- Import that into scribus.

OK, this way is a little bit elaborate, but it works. I used it several 
times for scientific posters.
