[Q] FindRoot & large system of eqns

I am a new user of the student edition of mathematica. I am trying to use
it to solve a large system of non-linear equations using FindRoot in the
form of:


I have 16 equations and 16 unknowns, as is required, but it seems no matter
how many of the system variables that I provide initial guesses for,
mathematica always seems to state that my system is somehow not properly
defined, guessed for...etc.

Does someone have a good, straight-forward example for FindRoot applied to
a large non-linear system? If so, please e-mail it to me at

Thanks in advance
