Both your ways to include graphics are obsoleted long ago by the rise
of the graphic[s|x] package.

graphicx.sty: but note that, dependend on the dvi previewer/processor
you use, it will support the formats *this* backend understands, not
more. LaTeX (or rather TeX) doesn´t know about graphics, Knuth only
provided the hook for backends.

Norris Preyer shows the perfect, correct example and points to the
canonical epslatex document; I´m just writing this to make things

PS: I seldom use latex, at least less often than *LaTeX*. :-)
