Would someone let me know if they have a solution for the


I'm intersted if Mathematica 3.0 can do it.
MMA2.2 cannot do that one, but does provide an answer for the more general problem

Integrate[(x*y)^(1/2)/(x+y)* x^(a-1/2) *(1-x)^(b-1/2) *y^(c-1/2) *(1-y)^(d-1/2),

however that answer appears to be incorrect.  I'm interested in the
case that a,b,c,d are non-negative integers. The first integral is for a=b=c=d=0.

I expect the answer will be in terms of hypergeometric functions and beta functions.

I am at, but I will follow 
these threads for a few days too.
I appreciate any help or suggestions.
