I guess you have read the INSTALL documentation very carefully, 
now it's time to read the manual. If you read the section on 
Running LilyPond in the Tutorial, you'll see that the normal
way to invoke LilyPond is to run
~> ly2dvi
which gives you a .dvi file, or
~> ly2dvi -P
which also gives you a PS file.
