I think you can do what you're wanting with OpenOffice.  Writer and 
Draw are both pretty powerful tools for basic layout/DTP.  They are 
NOT replacements for PageMaker-like products though.  Scribus is 
looking pretty promising, but I still don't use it yet, because 
OpenOffice has been able to do all that I've needed it to.
