Well AutoCAD 2000lt is I believe only the 2D part and so QCad
http://www.ribbonsoft.com/qcad.html
will likely meet your needs. It opens DXF files fine (including
DXF2004 and R12 versions).
Im not a CAD user myself so dont know if its features compare well to
AutoCAD or the lite version at all but I have erad that it is very
good. I also gather that it can be installed via a quick visit to
Synaptic :)

Hope it helps

Tom
