Hi MarcM, welcome to the forums.

Are you trying to 'open' the pdf files or place them as pictures within a picture frame?  Also which version of Scribus and Ghostscript are you using?

Just to quickly add to what mnawij said, if you install Ghostscript after Scribus you might need to manually tell Scribus where GS is. (I think this issue is fixed on 1.5.x.)
