If you want to just draw the circuits, try dia. I think it is installed by default in fc4, but it will certainly be on the cds.

There are also various versions of spice available if you want to analyze the circuits as well.

I hope this helps

Eagle from

Available for Windoze and Mac too, though Linux seems to be the principal OS (of course!)

It does circuit design and PCB layout, free for small users or you can pay and have the full suite.
