That would be one possibility but I've largely given up on Dia down
through the years just for lack of compatibility and import/export with
other applications. Obviously, native Visio compatibility would be
wonderful but, what's there is, errr, primitive at best. Dia does have
the advantage of a nice rich shape library collection and collections

ER Diagrams seem pretty simple, almost akin to flow charts. Those
things could easily be done in just about any 2D CD app like QCad or a
raster graphics package like OpenOffice Draw. I've had to do similar
diagrams for presentation and opted for the later largely because they
were going into either OO Writer or OO Presents. I've reserved using
QCad for doing more architectural type drawings but could easily do the
same in there.
