I tried that here, it works:

kronstadt:~$ latex \\nonstopmode\\input testncs.ltx
This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.3.7)
LaTeX2e <2001/06/01>
Babel <v3.7h> and hyphenation patterns for american, french, german, ngerman, n
ohyphenation, loaded.

(./testncs.ltx (/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/base/article.cls
Document Class: article 2001/04/21 v1.4e Standard LaTeX document class
(/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/psnfss/newcent.sty) (./testncs.aux)
(/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/psnfss/ot1pnc.fd) [1] (./testncs.aux) )
Output written on testncs.dvi (1 page, 232 bytes).
Transcript written on testncs.log.
kronstadt:~$ cat testncs.ltx

blah blah blah


An obvious difference is in our version of LaTeX and Web2C.
Interestingly, you have a newer LaTeX but I have a later Web2C!  Did
you perhaps download a LaTeX format on your own?

Other than that, maybe you should come clean with your document
complete preamble, are there other things you're loading before

And of course there's comp.text.tex ... I you ask there and get an
answer, I'd be interested to hear it.
