Hi,
  Please check the relationship type.. I don't recall exactly but it depends on relationship type.
The types of relationships are "Identifying" and "Not-Identifying"
If you select a relationship type "Identifying", then it will add the FK to PK list.
You can right click the relation link, make it "Not-Identifying" and uncheck the PK box.
PS : I don't have Visio now but it was my experience with Visio 2003.

Badri.
