I know what you mean about the straight jacket, Visio used to almost  
drive me to the sanitarium. One day I bit the bullet and RTFM (and a  
book) and now I don't find it so frustrating ;)

I have in the past used SmartDraw (http://www.smartdraw.com), it's  
commercial, but IMHO resonably priced, and I found it quick and easy  
to whip up network diagrams with it. It's also pretty good at flow  
charts.

Just my $0.05
