A couple of general comments --
(1) I see the values of x in the data file are in the range 300--800.
Try fitting the data with new variables (for both the dependent
and independent variables) such that the mean and standard
deviation of each new variable are 0 and 1, respectively.
This is just to make the numbers less likely to overflow or
underflow -- there is no statistical meaning to this.
(2) Given the form of the equation (with sums of exponentials),
it's very likely that the 6 parameters are not well-determined
by the data you have, i.e., there are wide ranges of values which
give almost the same goodness of fit. That's not necessarily a
bad thing -- for one thing it means you can afford to tolerate
inaccuracies in the numerical analysis -- but it does mean that
if you are trying to draw conclusions based on specific values of
the parameters, your conclusions will be spurious.
For what it's worth
