Intersection of spheres

HI!  I have the following problem :

Let A1 = x^2 + y^2 + z^2 = R^2 (* be a sphere *)

A2 = x^2/a^2 + y^2/b^2 + z^2/c^2 = 1 (* be a ellisoid *)
with
c>b>a
and
c>R>a

Plot the intersection of A1 and A2 for c>R>a.

I can do this on MAPLE, but get messed up because of the lines showing up
through the back .  I think Mma has a hidden line removal facility tyhat
would come in handy here.

regards,

bappa.
