LyX translates an ellipsis (entered with Alt + . or via the Insert menu) 
to \ldots. (Note the final s -- not sure if your "\ldot" was a typo or 
whether you are not remembering the command correctly.) AFAIK, \ldots is 
defined in the LaTeX kernel and does not require loading a package. The 
same is true of \textellipsis.
