The next version of Mathematica (3.0) will have a boundary value solver
for single linear nth order equations, where you can give multiple boundary 
values or equations with multiple boundary values.

However, solving systems of ODEs with multiple boundary conditions might
come in some later versions but not in version 3.0 (that is a very
complicated problem) so for such systems you might wish to look for
other software.
