Depending on what you are going to draw; if anything either technical or
building/cottage then you can try either ProgeCAD Smart 2009 or
Draftsight, both have free versions that are fully functional 2D CAD
programs for private use only.
Especially Draftsight is quite easy to learn.
Download from their own homepage.

Thanks all. If I make a suggestion to LO - add some more CAD abilities
to Draw such as higher precision. LOD is a very useful program, and
could be even more useful.
This is a always what happens to good software, be it FOSS,
commercial, shareware, whatever. Developers keep adding features
until it becomes bloated, buggy, and slow.
Then users complain about it being bloated, buggy, and slow.
If you need that type of precision for your project, maybe LO isn't
the correct software.
My suggestion would be to try page layout software and a basic
CAD/drawing program. Do your drawing (I'm assuming you need to do
more than just a line) then input the drawing into the page layout
software where you'll have so much better options for layout than you
ever will in LO.
FWIW, I've yet to see any word processing that has more than 2 decimal
places for spacing.
Also, if you want truly good looking text, use page layout software
and a quality font. I've yet to see a word processor that does
kerning. Word processors do character spacing, which is not the same.
Document processors do kerning, AFAIK.
