Uneven Grid Guides for Trifold Brochure in Publisher 2007

I am designing a 8.5x11 Trifold Brochure and see that each panel should NOT be the same size (http://graphicdesign.stocklayouts.com/2011/10/26/what-are-the-dimensions-of-a-tri-fold-brochure/)

But looking at the MS "Layout Guides", it seems I can only make them the same size (e.g. Grid Guides prompts me for Number of Columns and space between columns).

How do I correctly layout a Trifold Brochure so that the three panels can be sized differently per the link above?

Thanks-
Sam

I've not used Publisher in ages, but why tell it you want a trifold brochure?
Just start a new Letter publication and put the guides manually.

PS: if you get the opportunity to work with a true page layout software (Indesign, Quark, Scribus), go for it.

HTH,
Dan

Thanks Dan - I appreciate your thoughts.  

I am not telling Publisher I want to make a trifold (i.e. via some template or settings if that's what you mean); and I wish I knew of a way to set the guides manually...

Page design->Guides->Ruler guides->Vertical
Add there 2 guides, at the position from the page you linked to.
Repeat for the next page.

See attachment (change extension to pub).

Thanks for going to the trouble.  Wondering if you used Publisher 2007 (I'm not seeing Page Design menu option)

OK - found how to do it for Publisher 2007: hover mouse pointer over vertical ruler until I see two headed arrow; click on two headed arrow and drag right to where I want vertical ruler and release mouse button.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
