Hennig86 is obtained by sending a check to:
Dr. A. Kluge
Museum of Zoology
Univ. of Michigan
Ann Arbor, MI 48109
Cost is $50 plus $5 or $10 for shipping and diskette, etc.,
depending on whether the order is from U.S. or not, respectively.

The non-Mac version of PAUP, which might be released soon or perhaps
not, does not depend on Windows. The Mac version 3.1 will soon be
released. The old MS-DOS/mainframe version is truly obsolete and
should not be used (unless you don't care whether or not you find
the minimum length trees).
As Carol mentioned, Phylip is available and is free (Joe, have you
got it working on microwave ovens yet? ;-)
