Here's how I do it on Ubuntu Lucid (you may have to adapt it a little for 

Export the whole thing to PDF as usual

Open it in a PDF viewer, go to File -> Print and choose the 'Print to 
File' option.

Now, under the 'Range' option, choose 'Pages' and enter 4,1 into the box 
(you can enter any pages in any order, separated by a comma).

Now go to the Page Setup tab and set '2' in the 'Pages per side' option.

Set any other options that may be appropriate.

Use the 'Print Preview' button to check how it looks. You can print this 
output directly to your printer, but also Print to File if you want to 
keep or distribute a printer-ready file.
