Does anybody know a tool for Linux that allows me to create prototypes (not coding) of web sites, something like DesignerVista or ConceptDraw?

Drupal is something that I've personally messed with. Squarespaces.com is a online website manager/creator, but it isn't free.

I use The Gimp to prototype website designs.

How exactly do you prototype your websites?

I draw out designs on paper. Then when its the way I like it, I create a digital copy with the Gimp. This allows me to quickly ascertain whether certain looks will work. I set up everything exactly as I would want it to appear in a web browser.

Once that's done and I'm satisfied with everyone, I start coding and reproduce what I had in the Gimp.

That sounds like a good technique, some of my friends do that for customers.
