Arguably, the easiest way would be to use *FindFit* as follows:

In[1]:= {a, b, c} /.
  FindFit[{{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {7, 8, 9}},
   a + b x1 + c x2, {a, b, c}, {x1, x2}]

Out[1]= {1.55556, 0.555556, 0.444444}

*FindFit* returns a list of replacement rules that are applied to the 
parameter names. (Note that the syntax for *FindFit* is slightly 
different from the syntax for *Fit*.)
