Talking Eagle is free...

Eagle is free, if you only use the board layout, and your board is 3 inch by 4 inch.

www.cadsoft.de (I think this is the site)

The learning curve is sharp. Once you get used to it things go quickly.

Free downloadable version available. Schematic capture and PCB layout, built-in docyumentation and tutuorial. You will hgave to pay for written documentation and Gerber file generator. This is a full strength, industrial grade product. It is not something you learn over night, but the software is very complete and stable.

Here's a discussion I initiated a while back. Good information on a number of packages. Geoff (sadly, no longer a member) spent a fair bit of time on this:
Cheap or Free PCB Layout software?

Thatīs what Iīd say as well.
Once you get into it everything goes real fast.
Even doing your own packages and devices is no problem.
I donīt use the auto-router though. Still canīt handle that properly.
