[S] Bootstrapping non-linear regression

Dear All,
I am running non-linear regression using nlminb, nls and nlregb. I need to
obtain confidence intervals for the estimated parameters, and as far as I
see it, the best way is through bootstrap. However, I cannot figure out how
to do this using the "bootstrap" function, as it looks like, to me, that it
cannot be used to bootstrap regressions based on the residuals. Can anyone
give me some pointers on an efficient way to do this?

I appreciate any help.
