Are the files without extension? Spaces themselves are not a problem,  
but LaTeX needs an extension to identify the file type. If the files  
are really named "Fig 01-01.eps" (and you just happen to hide the  
extension in the Finder), then you may try
	\includegraphics{"Fig 01-01"}
	\includegraphics{"Fig 01-01.eps"}
in your latex file, and get away with it.

If you really don't have an extension, add those with the programs  
mentioned before.
