It's not a free option, but PageStream is a phenomenal DTP package available for Windows, Linux, Amiga, AmigaPPC, Mac OS X, and MorphOS.
I've used it since it earlier, Amiga-only days, and now use it on Linux; it is purportedly as capable, perhaps more so, than Quark Xpress, and is certainly a lot cheaper ($149, vs. over $1000). I can't personally testify whether it is, in fact, more capable—I've never used XPress—but I can say that PageStream is probably the most powerful package I've used.
Sorry if this sounds like a sales pitch; it's not, really! I'm just enthusiastic about this particular product.
Incidentally, anyone know if it (PageStream) works properly on a 64-bit system? I haven't gotten around to trying it out yet…
