I personally like KiCad, recent builds in particular have come a long way in improving it to be easier to use in my opinion. I've tried gEDA, and while it certainly looks like a very powerful program, I never really got the hang of using it.

Those are open-source programs. If you don't mind closed-source programs, then go with the freeware version of Cadsoft Eagle. It is a pretty nice piece of software, though the freeware version is a little bit limited. I dunno if this is relevant to you, but for some reason, it also doesn't like the Gnome desktop environment for Linux computers (at least when I've tried).
