i'm not familiar with mathematica yet but simply rewriting the problem
in the following equation helps:
( 100 B + 10 U + T ) ( 100 A + 10 S + K ) = 10^4 F + 10^3 E + 10^2 A +
10 S + T
and specifying that:
B,A,F are in {1...9}
U,T,S,K,E are in {0...9}

...for the precise technical commands to type, i don't know
cheers
