Floor plan software - any good cheap packages?

I'm after some basic floorplan software to help with an IT Inventory - just needs to come up with some basic 2D floor plans, to handle basic desk shapes, printer plinths, etc.

I've had a quick play with AutoCAD 2002 - which I used to use a long time ago, but I've forgotten a lot of it, and don't really fancy the learning curve for what is a sledgehammer to crack a nut.

Anyone got any funky packages that they can recommend?
ta, Danny

    first one looked good, but is 3d, I just need 2d.

    2nd looks ok, perhaps the Instant Architect option - $30

    Smart Draw was nice, but a bit pricey.  I'm also about to try using Visio, so will see how that goes.

    Visio worked out pretty well in the end...
