Packet Tracer is available as part of the Cisco CCNA Network Academy Courses. It's a good tool for initially learning about networking and allows the instructors to "build labs" and assignments for their students. It might be the only option for some Academies in the 3rd world that can't afford the real hardware labs -- but while being "cute" it lacks a lot of functionality. It still has a long way to go before I'd consider it a fully functional simulator -- but it is a good learning tool when used as part of the Academy training.
