That's the right way.

Did You type your command like this?  That is, with the real
characters "(x_{0},y_{0})(x_{1},y_{1})"?  If yes, the error is obvious:
x_{0} and the others are not correct coordinates.

Is the following code correct for you?

\documentclass{minimal}
\usepackage{pstricks}

\begin{document}
\begin{pspicture}(-2,-2)(2,2)
\psline[linestyle=dashed](-2,-2)(2,2)
\end{pspicture}
\end{document}

If no, what is the *exact* error message (copy paste from you log file).
