I've got the following problem:

I need to solve the following integral:


For those of you who do not recognize it at once: it's the integral of the
square root of a 4th degree polynomial in x. I've tried to solve the above
integral with Mathematica, but after, say, two hours of computing I stopped
the calculation - it looked like the Kernel crashed or whatever. Is there an
analytical solution to this problem at all?

Thanks for all help there is hopefully to come...
