Nonlinear fit to diff eqs.

Dear All,
My problem is to fit a set of data to a system of coupled first order ordinary differential equations. The example is:
Experimental data of y1, y2 and y3 as a function of time y1 = {a1,a2,a3,a4,.....,aN} y2 = {b1,b2,b3,b4,.....,bN} y3 = {c1,c2,c3,c4,.....,cN} time = {t1,t2,t3,t4,.....,tN} Equations to fit (for example):
y1'[t] = k1 y1[t] + k2 (1y1[t]y2[t]) + k4 y3[t] y2'[t] = k2 y2[t]  k3 (1y2[t]) + k4 y3[t] y3'[t] = k3 (1y1[t]y2[t]y3[t]) +k2 y3[t]
I need to fit my data to get those k1, k2, k3, and k4. What is the easiest to to do this with Mathematica? Any package? Please help.
Thaks in advance,
SF
