Intellicad, Rhino3D, Vdraft, General Cadd,,,
follow the link in my sig.  goto the Wine pages.

there are some that won't work, but i've had pretty good success.

also don't forget that there are native application for linux.
Qcad is not bad, and Varicad has just released a new version for linux.

hope that helps

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of DOS,
and danced the skies on Linux silvered wings.
