Have you tried phylo_win?  It's a great program with many options.  It accepts
alignments in clustal, fasta, phylip and mase format and allows you to
bootstrap and jumble as well as select only a set of sequences and regions to
tree.  Neighbor joining and Max. parsomony trees are available.

Here is the web site.  Binaries are available for a number of architectures.


If you want to continue with Phylip, documentation is here:


Good luck,
