I tried to download the files but got "Bad magic number" on both. The files 
were not large but had a tiff suffix. Clearly a download and not a Scribus 

It is possible to put Knoppix (a Debian variant) on a flash drive of sufficent 
capacity. In general Linux of some flavor is a more reliable base for Open 
source programs such as Scribus. MSWindows is however much better for playing 
games and running commercial software like InDesign.
