design Cisco switch configurations

Hi Friends,

Is there any freeware to design (customize)Cisco catalyst switch configurations as per customers requirements? the desired software may have a drop down and/or select & add and/or pick and paste (diagramatic) features to do this task. I am new to cisco switch customization design and haven't found any tool on net to do this. Please suggest me any method to accomplish this task, as my new profile requires me to do it frequently.

Thanks in advance, and a 10 pointer for every valuable suggestion ;)

regards,
PreSales Specialist

I thought forum is for HP Products.
Not sure, but seems I heard there is some Cisco GUI tool to deploy configurations and design.
