"Linear Regression with Only Positive Weights"

Rapidminer noob here,

I'm interested in performing a Linear Regression for the purposes of making a predictive model, but I would like to force the weights to be positive for each of the attributes. Likewise I may want to force the y-intercept to be zero.  Is this possible?

Thanks,
Jon

    Crickets.... Anyone else trying to do something similar?  In general I'm interested in bounding the weights by some constraints.  Curiously, if I choose to use a Polynomial Regression it offers me min/max coefficient parameters.  This confuses me since I thought that Polynomial Regression was merely a Linear Regression under the covers.
