Well, I am hesitating.
On one hand, I am the maintainer for scribus in Fink, so I could
recommend to install Fink. Once Fink is installed and configured, you
simply say "fink install scribus-aqua" and wait until it finishes, and
then you will have scribus-aqua-188.8.131.52.
On the other hand, this is the "New member" thread, and IIRC you have
only 512MB of memory. Installing Fink requires some familiarity with the
Unix side of MacOS, and since "fink install" means that scribus and all
its prerequisites will be compiled on your machine, it will take some
time. Fink also has precompiled binaries for scribus, but currently only
for 184.108.40.206 on MacOSX 10.5.
If you want to try this, I can walk you through the necessary steps.
