They don't indicate which Ghostscript to pick from a vast list other that it must at least ghostscript 8.60+ also says that it must contain gswin32cexe not (gswin32exe).  After guessing which ghostscript option to choose as there is no gswin32cexe option nor link to gswin32cexe from what I did pick, I'm natually left wondering, what the freak!  So, is it too late to download Ghostscript AFTER I donwloaded scribus, what ghostscript to select, and what is ghostscript that it isn't included in the scribus free download?

You can install ghostscript later:

There is no problem with Windows Vista and Scribus.
Scribus can handle both plain text and also Word documents (.doc 
extension). If you import Word documents all formatting will be lost.
