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.
