population genetics software needed

I am not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this, but as there is 
no population genetics group, here goes.

I am beginning my first year of teaching, and am looking for a program to 
simulate change in gene frequencies (one-locus, two-allele would be just fine) 
in order to teach 2nd year college students the basics regarding evolution at 
a genetic level. I could do this with spreadsheets but this precludes the 
effects of drift, making it a somewhat sterile exercise. The ideal would be 
something that we can change population size, starting frequencies, selection 
coefficients for each genotype and generations. If anyone has such a program 
or knows where I can buy or FTP one, please let me know. On this group is 
great, but via e-mail would be better.

Thanks a lot
