I´m trying to run Lilypond 1.7.29 on MS 98. When I click on the CYGWIN icon, I get the MS-DOS window with address@hidden <mailto:address@hidden> $ and I´m afraid I don´t know what to do with that. (I don´t yet have much experience with these kinds of programs.) Am I doing something wrong?

Nothing indicates you are doing something wrong. You really should start
reading the documentation first... it can be found either on your system
or online at http://www.lilypond.org , follow the link to "Documentation" (use documentation for version 1.8.0 if you look online).

In short: you will need to

1. start a text editor,
2. type in your music,
3. save it as somefilename.ly
4. then at the prompt of the "MS-DOS" window (in fact it is a "bash" window, but it doesn't matter right now) you will need to type a command like

ly2dvi -P somefilename.ly

to get a .pdf file with music.
