There is a free and good one here:
Circad

And also you may try the eagle lite version. It has a few limiatations, perhaps not to bother you.

If you are new to PCB Cad, I recommend Express PCB.

It is easy, easy, easy to use. But it does has its draw backs.

If you want a full feature PCB Cad program, and will want to move up and on to using prime auto routers. Then get Target 3000 v.15. It is free, has no board size limits, but is limited to 250 pins. But also, it will introduce you to the Electra Auto Router, with a pin limit of 250.
