1.To draw figures that you want, go to <dia> application in linux 
system. Draw figure just like window, save as <fig.dia>. Now you can 
export this fig as ps, eps. from the same dia application. 
2. You can draw figure in mswindow and convert it to eps or ps. however 
this converted ps or eps do not see good looking. 
3. you can do it with xfig. but for new one dia is best and easier.
