Hi all,

It seems that every week or two that someone asks if an equivalent to 
Autocad is available on FC. Two Intellicad-based CAD packages, running 
under Wine, are now available as betas:

http://www.progesoft.com/cadforlinux/files/ProgeSOFT_CADforLINUX_Setup-1.1.0.tar.bz2
(unlimited use until end of 2005)

and

http://www.bricscad.com/about/download/downloadForm.jsp?product=B4L
(expires end of October 2004)

You'll need to download a Wine rpm also 
(http://www.winehq.com/site/download).

Although they run under Wine, they have the same basic command-line 
command set as Autocad, and they read dwg files directly, making them 
much easier to migrate to than QCad or Varicad.

Personally, I find the Progesoft version very promising under FC1.
