Leanne, Ted Ersek has a RootSearch package on MathSource that might help. In general, my belief is, if you are having trouble finding a root to an equation, rather than just throwing brute force at it, you should see if you can perform transformations on the function, by change of variables, that will more cleanly isolate the roots and the regions of search.
