Can someone direct me to where I can find software, that I might be able to draw schematics on my computer, then print it. Also, is there some type of transfer paper that you can print to so that you can make your own overlays?

Memory Loss, I use Eagle from Cadsoft and their freeware version is more than enough to fit my needs.  Not only does it include a schematic program, but also full blown PCB design and a huge component library.  The only limitations are the board size, 4" x 5" I think, and the number of holes in the board (400 or around it).  Other than that, it is identical to their $500 professional version.  Give it a try at  www.cadsoft.de/freeware.htm.  Great software!!

I use Visio but there are many freeware and shareware types available. Try Tucows.

Hi ML,
I use 'Windraft' for schematics and 'Winboard' for PCBs.  Free demos available from http://www.ivex.com
100 pin limit on both - but otherwise full feature "professional" programs.

Literally dozens of freeware and demo PCB layout programs available on the 'net - try a google search http://www.google.com

If you use a Mac - there ain't too many - but you should be able to find something.
