I can suggest Network Insight for the Mac which I use now and is based on the JUNG java library, if I recall. It creates the following networks:
Star, Ring, Complete, Heirarchical, Spiderweb, Distributed, Mesh, Erdos-Renyi Random, Small World, Scale Free and Fitness Models (titles listed in the generation screen) and the generator simply asks how many nodes you'd like.
On another note, I was wondering if anyone knew of a tool that could be used to create maps of web sites. Specifically, I'm looking to create link visual maps of web sites to look at issues of structure.
