Things to try:
R (with the gplot.* functions in the SNA package, in particular)
Ksociograma (there's a package of it in the debian distribution...)
graphviz (and kin - neato, dotty, et cetera)
SocNetV (see http://nicomedia.math.upatras.gr/%7Eoxy/sna/index.htm)
I'm sure there is probably some sort of (more mathematical) graph analysis
or visualization tool in Octave, as well - maybe in the octave-forge kit.
there are others. these are things you are likely to run across - some
more oriented toward power, some more oriented toward user-friendliness.
