> Before Installing Scribus
>     * Install Ghostscript before installing Scribus. Ghostscript 8.60+  
> or newer is recommended. This is important for EPS,PS import and print  
> preview. The file naming conventions can be confusing. gs860w32.exe is  
> the normal Windows installer, which in turn installs two .exe files. The  
> correct .exe name for use with Scribus is gswin32c.exe, not gswin32.exe.  
> Setting this properly will avoid error messages on start up and Scribus  
> will makes a best effort attempt to auto-detect Ghostscript's location  
> on install. More details: Scribus Preferences

http://www.scribus.net/?q=windows updated to add a link to the GhostScript
installation instructions and mention that GS and Scribus installations are
independent events.
