No! Forget these commands immediately! ;-)

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.

Use psfrag.sty.

Norris Preyer shows the perfect, correct example and points to the
canonical epslatex document; I´m just writing this to make things
clear for newbies. (From where do they know all this evil stuff...?)


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