The two major professional and free EDA tools for PCBs are

1. KiCad http://kicad.sourceforge.net
2. gEDA http://www.geda-project.org

There are many other related tools like Qucs (simulation), boom
(sourcing), and so on. For a good overview I recommend the Fedora
Electronic Lab, see http://spins.fedoraproject.org/fel/#portfolio

Or join the Qi Hardware planet at http://en.qi-hardware.com/planet
which has a focus on free tools.
