# [OS X TeX] inputting figures that are pfd files

I am a TeX user, gradually switching to LaTeX.
In TeX, I often used PiCTeX to generate figures,
so I have tried to do this in LaTeX. For this I have
used TeX and PiCTeX to generate a small figure,
obtaining a pdf file, called fos.pdf. I put the statement

\usepackage{graphics}

near the top of a LaTeX document, and I put the statement

\includegraphics{fos}

somewhere in the file. When processing the file with LaTeX,
I get the usual pdf output up to the point where the
\includegraphics statement is, then nothing else. The logfile
gives the message

<fos.pdf, id=1, 614.295pt x 794.97pt> <use fos.pdf>
Overfull \hbox (159.5385pt too wide) in paragraph at lines 134--135
[][]

and seems to continue processing the file. (Lines 134--135 are at the
\includegraphics statement.) I confess to not understanding
in the book of Kopta and Daly. But, just to try something I modified
the statement to

\includegraphics[0cm,0cm][2cm,2cm]{fos}

Now I got a full set of output, but with a blank space where I would
have expected the figure, and no relevant comments in the log file as
far as I could see. Any suggestions?
