Power Architect.

It's free, open source, multi-platform(Java) and an excellent diagramming tool. It even has a reasonable go at untangling the tramlines of complicated schemas. I also like the linkable HTML output that it gives in addition to the pdf/png ERD diagram. After years of looking for a reasonable free ERD tool, eventually an excellent one came along instead.
