Hi R helpers,

   I was wondering if anybody knows if is possible to generate bootstrap 
values for a cluster analysis in R.  What I am trying to do is obtain 
some confidence on the clusters formed by resampling the data set.  A 
similar type of analysis is used in molecular taxonomy and the 
confidence values of each cluster are placed in the nodes of the 
dendogram.  Any ideas on how to do this in R will be appreciated.
