Use the "retree" program in the phylip package to set the outgroup and the root.

To set the outgroup with "retree", you need to press 'o' and then the number of the taxon you wish to use as the out group.

Another handy command in 'retree' is 'm', which uses "mid-point" rooting.

When you are done, be sure to save the tree (it will be named 'outtree' if that file does not exist already).
