I am trying to solve a particular problem in Mathematica version 2.2 for
Microsoft Windows.  If anyone could provide some direction I would
appreciate the help.

Following is a description of the problem.

Find X that provides the least error in AX=B subject to the constraint that
the sum of the elements in X is equal to the sum of the elements in B.  A
numerical solution is required.

A: known and is a (n rows * n columns) matrix with 1's along the diagonal.
X: unknown and is  (n rows by 1 column).
B: known and is a (n rows * 1 column) matrix.

Sometimes the sum of the elements in B is equal to zero, or nearly zero.
