Here's what Maple gave me:
I think this is not a solvable integral. Mathematica gave:
It does not have a nice indefinte form. If it had limits of integration, perhaps Kriz or someone could have a clever way to do it?. Here's the graph. At first glance, one would think it'd be easy.

Ok, if it's unsolvable indefinitely, can we do it in the range to ? Some clever trick?

You can't put this into a form with a variable. You can put it in the form of an infinite series. (That's how the hypergeometric function is typically written.) -Dan
