To start with, I guess you have a misprint in your last equation. Instead of (C2*L3G4), shouldn't it read (C2*L4G4)? My first impression is that the solution (if it exists) is unique. Four linear equations in four unknowns? The additional constraints are either satisfied by the solution, or they aren't, according to the values of your constants. I send you a notebook (not to the MathGroup, for attachments are not allowed here) with the details.
