I just stumbled upon this really cool program for creating UI mockups called Balsamiq. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. You can also play with it online:

One possible open source alternative is called the Pencil Project, but it looks like it's maybe got a little too much going on. One of the main things Balsamiq has going for it is it only takes a couple of minutes to slap together a mockup. You definitely don't want to be spending more time on your mockup than you have to, taking away from time spent actually implementing it.

One promising alternative, which is free and web-based is Mockingbird. It uses Javascript, and it's pretty nice.

Balsamiq examples:
