That's indeed a very old version -- teTeX-based -- two or three years  
old at least. Not sure how it interacts with a current TeXShop, but  
indeed when invoked in TeX and Ghostscript mode it's a PDF file which  
is produced (as indicated "Output written on main.pdf") whereas a DVI  
file should be produced.

Hence no wonder that dvips complains that "DVI file can't be opened".

Unless you've a specific reason to stick to teTeX, I would suggest to  
install either MacTeX-2007 or the current gwTeX i-Package.

That can't be working in TeX and Ghostscript mode.
