SPSS "non-linear regression," which I believe is part of the regression module, has an option for computing the standard errors of the regression coefficients using bootstrap. One could estimate a linear regression model using the non-linear feature, and then do the test.
However, if you want to design your own bootstrap procedure, then someone else will have to help with the syntax program.

I can do the bootstrapping when I use the sample syntax and sample datafile, but I run into difficulty with I try to use it with my own data file. The samples are drawn, but the estimates are not being saved into the temporary file. The syntax file notes that the regression coefficients will be save with _B and _Beta attached to the variable names, but the error message I get says that those new variable names (with _B and _Beta attached) are not recognized. They are recognized and the summary statistics are reported when I use the sample datafile, though.
