Tools for Drawing Network/System Diagrams

  * Dia - (*nix) free tool, but limited icon sets, export to gif/jpeg etc. 
  * MS Visio - (MSWIN) propietary, but has nice stencils/icons
  * MS Excel / OpenOffice Calc - Spreadsheet programs, good for producing server/rack diagrams
  * OmniGraffle - (Apple) works well, can also use some MS Visio icon sets!
  * xfig - (*nix) old, tedius, horrible-looking, but possible to persevere and produce nice diagrams
  * (Paper/Pen OR Board/Marker) + Digital Camera - captures live sessions with digital images!
