Been using OOo for a week and I'm like a kid in a candy store!

What is the equivalent of a Desktop Publisher, Like MS Publisher. What I want to do is create a greeting card. In Publisher, I could bring up a template for a 4-fold card. It would give me the four pages to work on, and when printed, the 4 pages would show on the paper so that I could fold the paper in four and have a greeting card.

Which module do I use to do this?

A greeting card could be done in Draw or Writer. That's not really DTP though.

This thread mentions some options outside OOo. There are other threads which discuss the subject.

Here is a quick sample of a card created with sdraw. Edit it with your own content: Happy_birthday_george.odg

Thxs for the quick responses, links and for the template, James. I've learned through one of the links above that I can copy and paste the contents of .pub files into Draw. Just tried it and it works fine. Just have to do a bit of tweaking.

I'd like to totally uninstall MS Office, Publisher will be the only issue for now.
