Hi, Can anyone recommend me a 'free' UML design tool ?

Actually what I'm really after initially is a database schema design tool.

For free UML, try AguUML (http://www.tigris.org). There's also a community Edition of the Poseidon UML tool (http://www.gentleware.de), which is based on the ArgoUML source, but is more polished in many ways (though also crippled in a few). If you actually felt like buying a UML tool, theirs is much more reasonably-priced than most.

For the strict DBMS/ORM type of design, check out DBDesigner. It's not a UML tool, but it allows you to graphically layout your schema. You can then use MiddleGen to build the persistency info for frameworks such as Hibernate.
