How do we model the GUI with UML? This includes the things to be displayed in each screen and how one screen links to another

You don't - UML doesn't have a diagram for it. See http://www.agilemodeling.com/artifacts/uiFlowDiagram.htm

Exactly. Unfortunately, the UML is not complete and one of the things that it's missing is a standard way to model UI stuff. It's also missing a standard way to model a data schema, although that will hopefully change soon now that there is an OMG RFP for a UML data model. And it's missing a business process model and a standard way to model business rules (although they're working on that finally).

Know what also might be cool, although you cna use other things to do the same, but a formal Unit Test diagram, or Functional Test Diagram. I don't know, just throwing out fish.
