I can heartily recommend Balsamiq - the web version has a little 'buy me please' reminder pop-up every so often, but otherwise has no restrictions - you can save and distribute web-edited mockups by exporting them as XML.

If you're looking for a desktop option, but don't want to invest money in a one-off project, I'd suggest an open source vector image editor like OO Draw (which is a bit like Visio 2003).

All my colleagues rave about Balsamiq Mockups. There's even a free web
based tool. I've also found a hand drawn stencil for use in Visio. The
point is if you want to focus on high level interaction features
without blinding people by the design, the drawings should not be hi
fi. This is why hand sketches work so well.

I use Freemind for mind mapping, but I don't think it works well for
maps that don't start at the centre and work outward. What if you want
to show corresponding processes that don't have a single intersection?

Graphics look best at large sizes when created as vector drawings
instead of rasterized bitmaps.
