First, according to the owner's manual you should not try to light the pilot light. In fact they say: "Never attempt to manually light the burners with a match or other source of flame."
And: "Instead of a continuously burning pilot flame which wastes valuable energy, your furnace uses an automatic, hot surface ignition system to light the burners each time the thermostat starts your furnace."
For more you can read the owner's manual here: http://www.docs.hvacpartners.com/idc/groups/public/documents/techlit/OM58-114.pdf. From reading the manual, you likely need to have a qualified HVAC tech come out and diagnose any problems.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present. To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl
