Network Mapping Software

I inherited a network with no documentation. Does anyone have any recommendations for free or inexpensive network mapping software that would allow me to quickly map the network topology and interconnections of the CISO Switches, Windows Servers, and Workstations on this network?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
