I have a problem with this equation: (C[1], C[2] are some positive constants)


with boundary conditions y[0]=0.2 ( or any other number less than unity) and y[1]=1. X takes values in the range
When C[1]=C[2]=1 I can solve it with Dsolve( regardless of the boundary conditions). If the C's are different I can't.
I tried also with NDSolve but I couldn't do it( it works with initial conditions!).
Could you tell me what method use to solve it? I need only the y'[0].
