Can't find the pilot.., no heat

It doesn't have a pilot light in the traditional sense. The fuel is ignited by a hot surface ignitor (according to this owner manual: http://www.answersos.com/pdf/FN-AA-9092+-N.pdf), which works like a light bulb filament to ignite the fuel. It heats up without flame to a point where gas or oil can be ignited. There is a brief and very good YouTube video of how these work here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vtfg4n-C33U.

If your furnace is not lighting then there is a problem with it and the ignitor is either being prevented from working as a safety feature or perhaps is malfunctioning.

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.
