+1 for skaffman. When the question itself is so short and vague, I won't bother writing an answer. –  Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Nov 26 '10 at 10:37

Visio is a Microsoft tool for drawing diagrams, including database diagrams.

When it comes to database stuff, it supports reverse engineering, so you start from an existing database and automatically obtain you db diagram.

Depending on your needs, there are a lot of Visio alternatives. For simpler diagrams you can check out some on line applications too.
