Dear Tom,

The factanal function will compute factor scores by two different methods 
-- see ?factanal. The boot package (pretty much the standard for 
boostrapping in R) will do parametric bootstrapping.

Note that the help.search() function would likely have led you to these.

I hope that this helps,
