A lot of potential answers, Linda, but one thing worth knowing until 
your son is available is that you can download Windows versions that 
will work on either 32-bit or 64-bit XP (Scribus is 32-bit, but it still 
works on both).

So go to the Windows download page on www.scribus.net and that will 
direct you to the Scribus installer for Windows.

When your son is back, he can set up a repository for your Ubuntu -- 
this is the easiest way to get Scribus and keep it up to date.

Come back with any further problems.
