Robert,

I've had good luck with Freemind, which is an open-source
mind mapping program that lets you create hierarchical
structures easily. You can find out more about it at:

http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

There are some screenshots there that will give you an idea
of what the interface looks like.
