What you have here is a constraint programming problem.  Here are  
some sites with information:
http://kti.ms.mff.cuni.cz/~bartak/constraints/
http://clip.dia.fi.upm.es/~vocal/public_info/seminar_notes/node6.html
And here's a guide to using the multi-paradigm language Oz to solve  
constraint problems:

Good luck, and have fun!
