I use Dia all the time. It's a very good technical drawing app.

I like ArgoUML (http://www.argouml.org) or the commercial derivative Poseidon (http://wwwgentleware.com), which comes as a community edition.

This offers the full range of UML diagrams and code generation in many languages. Java, C++, c# etc. Be wary of the Community Edition from Gentleware (not that anyone here is likely to use it because it is not free) as I don't think it allows printing of the diagrams. Poseidon does have the concept of plug-ins though to give you lots of extras like round-trip and an Eclipse plug-in.

Umbrello is also a nice tool for UML diagrams.
