Hi Alan

I note you're from the UK, same as I. Linux format also has some good
articles on Scribus from time to time too.

Also, you may wish to join your local LUG to help get your CENTOS box up
and running and to help you with Scribus. I'm the Herefordshire
LUGMaster www.hlug.org.uk, so we're not the closest, but you welcome to
join our LUG anyway = we have no geographical restrictions ;-)

And yes, the Scribus ML, is the happiest, most friendly and, most
helpful I have come across - its a great resource. Also, don't forget
the official docs, and wiki. And the new Scribus book, is alos well
worth get holding of ..

Good luck
