In a recent paper, Sun et al. (2007) studied the existence of positive
solutions of nonhomogeneous multipoint boundary value problems for a
second-order differential equation. It is the purpose of this paper
to show that the shooting method approach proposed in the recent paper
by the first author can be extended to treat this more general problem.
