I just typeset this myself with my .eps file inserted and it typeset fine
after I changed the typo I point out below. Be sure that you have chosen
"TeX and Ghostscript" from the "Typeset" menu. In addition, as Ross pointed
out earlier, you don't need the .eps at the end of the filename.

To center the figure, I generally use:

generated from computation:
\begin{figure}
\begin{center}
\includegraphics{pulley-kinematics}
\end{center}
\caption{\label{Figure 2.1} Here is my figure.}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

*inside* the caption to avoid potential problems with references.

You have a misspelling above. It should be \setlength.
