'(OT) Electronic Drafting'
Does anybody know of a simple to use compact program for
drawing electronic circuits, I would need to be able to use it on an
ancient PC (486, MSDOS or W3.11). I do not need a full blown electronic
design package just something that is better than Windows Paint or
ASCII art :-)
Try Cadsoft Eagle. http://www.cadsoft.de. The "Light" version
can do a one-page schematic, and smallish 2-layer boards
for free. They have versions for DOS, Windows and Linux.

Bob Drzyzgula It's not a problem

Eagle's definitely good, the one potential problem I had with it on my
palmtop 486 (IBM PC110) was that unless you have a mouse, it's hard to
use - It did run on that 8Mb 486slc33, though. If you have a mouse,
it's a good answer; A little more learning curve, very helpful people
at the company though. The PC110 doesn't have a dos driver for it's
mouse/pointer, so I used the free Dos version of CirCad for a lot of
quick schematic sketching (http://www.holophase.com IIRC) - no mouse
required, smaller parts libraries, definitely quite usable as well. Try
both, see which you like better, maybe?

tri EEDRAW. It has some bugs, though, but for schematic it is a pretty
nice free tool. Can be found on the Simtelnet.

rcsradio has a lot of footprints , schematics etc to help design.
there is also a lot of instructions.

You didn't mention (or did someone else?) who RCS Radio is. He's not
too easy to find if you don't know.
thanks mate ,
sorry , i didn't think to put it in.
your right it is dificult
