Marc,

I have been using Scribus (http://www.scribus.net/) for my amateur
desktop publishing. If it is not already installed, you should be able
to install it with a quick yum install.

I do not use any templates for what I do. One place for them, might be
the companion site for Scribus (http://scribusstuff.org/) or with just
a little googling.

HTH,
