I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "open the software." I'm going to conclude that you missed a detail about how LilyPond works. It does *not* have an interactive interface like Finale/Sibelius. To use LilyPond you must create/edit a text file which contains the definitions of your music. Then LilyPond processes that file and produces a PDF of your music. You view that PDF and then make additional entries to your input (text) file.

Have you read the tutorial or crash course?  Those are good places to start.

Thank you very much for this software,and for your help.
After having read about this wonderful software,I have downloaded it and tried to get started,but i'm stuck!When I open the software,I see a blank page with the title 'Lily Pad'-typing the basic commands didn't produced any notation [though the test went fine .for houers I read the tutorials etc..but I can't find where did I go wrong.I dont see any of the screensots that i'm supposed to see[as in the 'Crash Course']. When things will be clear to me ,I think I will be one of the enthusistic members of Lily Pond[think that this will be the first step of moving to Linux]. Up til now i'm a windows user,I use a registerd Finale's Print Music.The fact that I can work only on one licenced computer[especially when it's not working right],besides of Finale's lacks-drives me mad! Details;I use a R61 Lenovo,Windows xp pro,IE8[browser],I downloaded Lily Pond 2.10.33-1 for Windows.Thanks,thanks and thanks!!!
