My guess is that a file feta20.600pk was created when you ran ly2dvi
('kpsewhich feta20.600pk' should return the path in that case).
It seems that your installation tells xdvi to use lower resolution
in the font files. Try 'xdvi -p 600 yourfile.dvi'. If that helps and 
you have root access, you can edit the file at 
>> kpsewhich -progname=xdvi --format='other text files' XDvi
and change the line with pixelsPerInch to 
XDvi*pixelsPerInch: 600
This is the setting used by default in teTeX, but Redhat might
have changed it for some reason.

If this didn't help, let's take it step by step:

- Did you install Lilypond from an RPM, using make install or ...?
- Clean up all font files from the current directory and run clean-fonts.
  Rerun ly2dvi. What's now the output of the following commands:
>> kpsewhich
>> kpsewhich feta20.tfm
>> kpsewhich feta20.600pk
>> kpsewhich feta20.300pk

- What's the value of $MFINPUTS and $TFMFONTS?
