Indeed there is: "mesh" currents

Aha I'm learning each day:).

(offtopic: is there any place where one can look up jargon names of things, and translate it into any language... because thing like mesh current is not really something I find by using a normal online translation tool..).

@Bubba: indeed its an easy task, but by using the mesh current idea one can solve this in a generic way and have all currents and voltages at the same time. By using the normal approach one would first have to calculate the total resistance, calculate the current, in a parallel, divide it among the possible ways it can flow depending on the total currents in those loops etc etc... If I could use a calculator tool like maple,I would prefer to use the mesh current thing (which gives me a matrix with all solutions) then calculate everything by hand, step by step, backtracking into the whole network...

To the OP if all of the above doesnt make sense: http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_1/chpt_10/3.html

Anyhow, I'm looking forward to see the solution written by the OP.:)
