    Other softwares are Eagle, Proteus, Ultiboard (National Instruments) and many others. Make a search in goolge for pcb design software.

    I've used FreePCB for a number of projects and I think it's very good, plus there's an active user forum. There's also an autorouter that's accessible via the Internet.

    FreePCB takes input in the form of a Pads-PCB netlist, though you can also add parts and traces manually.

    WinQcad is a little clunky but very good when you get used to it, its free and allows you to print so you can heat transfer.
