Windows 7: Network topology diagram software

Network topology diagram software

Could anyone recommend a software package (freeware preferably) to help draw up network topologies?

Ideally I would prefer a package that allows me to use (or add as an extension if necessary) Cisco 'icons' to do this since I am currently studying to sit my CCNP Switch exam in the next few months and it would help if I can have a diagram I can link to for the topology I have running for that particular set of notes.

Tacking on a second request - I would also be interested in any lab setups that may be out there to aid me in this but please note I'm not interested in exam dumps at all! What I would like, if possible, is something along the lines of the the material at GNS Vaults which gives you a topology and then asks you to perform certain actions relating to it something that may come up in the exam.
