LSI will take a pdf with x/1-a:2001 or alternatively a tiff file.
The bleeding edge  version of Scribus, 1.5.0, will allow X/1-a 
output. That is the one I use. I update it nightly.  If you don't 
want to use that version then save as tiff from 1.3.7.

After not getting burned (I think) with 1.3.7, I decided to give 1.5.0 a try
but can't find it. The latest Windoze download I found is 1.3.8. Is 1.5.0
located in some special place?
