Hi Deanne,

If you're desperate, you could try seqboot, which is part of the PHYLIP
Although designed for sequence data, I guess it will work on any data.
It is rather long-hand though, in that this program produces the 100 or
1000 resampled datamatrices, then you input these into your analysis
program, collate the results from each analysis, then count the support
for particular groupings yourself (although there may be other programs
in the PHYLIP package that can automate this - I know there is for
sequence data).
