I don't think the built-in statistics facilites do what you want. I guess the quickest way is to buy mathStatica (the price quoted on http://www.mathstatica.com/ says it is $80 for the book+mathStatica(basic)), and the challenging (!) way is to roll your own Mathematica code but I wouldn't recommend that if this is the first time you have used Mathematica.
