I think that I posted a solution to this before.  Here is another attempt.
Note that DSolve allows the boundary conditions to be entered as equations:

Mathematica (sun3.68881) 1.2 (November 6, 1989) [With pre-loaded data]

In[1]:= ?DSolve
DSolve[eqn, y[x], x] solves differential equations for the function y[x] with
   independent variable x. DSolve[{eqn1, eqn2, ...}, {y1[x1], y2[x2], ...},
   {x1, x2, ...}] solves a list of differential equations. Equations can
   either be differential equations or constraints: a differential equation
   may have the form F[y[x], y'[x], ..., Derivative[n][y][x], x] == 0;
   constraints may be of the form Derivative[k][y][pti]== vali.

In[1]:= DSolve[{x'[t]==-t, x[0]==1},x[t],t]

Out[1]= {{x[t] -> 1 - --}}
