Can you send a resulting TeX file here, so others can test it?

Looks like your installation of TeX is broken. Lyx requires working LaTeX. 
Install teTeX according to the book (it includes LaTeX) and retry.

LyX opens fine here, but has problems with the input of Russian text (just 
doesn't react to keypresses).
