when working with any CAS you need to precisely follow the semantics!
For example
is not a proper statement in Mathematica.
Moreover the first entry lhs1==1 is a test, lhs2=0 is an assignment
(assigns 0 to the variable lhs2; that might be the culprit for the
error message) and lhs23 is just an expession. YOu didn't show amy
detail, how you specified those lhsxx terms, so how could we help you
at all?
Also the call to Nsolve is stated incorrectly.
Are you sure, that you need to use Nsolve, maybe NDSolve is what you
are looking for.
