What output did you get on your system, which is...? Here is what I get
on mine:
In[1]:= S[r_] := 1/2 r BesselJ[1, r];
D[S[r], {r, 2}] + 1/r D[S[r], r] + S[r] // FullSimplify
DSolve[y''[r] + 1/r y'[r] + S[r] == BesselJ[0, r], y[r],
r] // FullSimplify
Out[2]= BesselJ[0, r]
Out[3]= {{y[r] -> -1 + 1/2 r BesselJ[1, r] + C[2] + C[1] Log[r]}}
In[4]:= {$Version, $ReleaseNumber}
Out[4]= {"6.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (May 21, 2008)", 3}
