First of all this depends on the operating system you use. 

For Unix, you could use xfig (www.xfig.org), a Java version (jfig) of
this program is currently alpha and operating system independent.

For windows you can get several free or shareware cad systems from
repositories like SIMTEL (ftp://sunsite.doc.ic.ac.uk/packages/simtel/)
or JUMBO (www.jumbo.com). Some companies let you have older versions of
their programs fopr free, for example Turbo CAD (www.imsi.com) or
Holophase (www.holophase.com) in the hope that you eventually buy the
newer versions.
