OK, I just tried reinstalling Scribus in the proper directory, and this
time it seemed to work perfectly. No error messages, and I didn't even have
to set the path manually. Now I'm completely mystified as to what went
wrong the first time around.

By the way, my path to gs is the following:  C:\Program

Thanks, all!
