Don't specify the engine you'll be using. The graphics (or better
yet: the graphicx) package will figure it out all for itself.

With the graphicx package, you can use \includegraphics[scale=0.4]
{gfx/rtscts.ps}
And please try to use real .eps files for figure inclusion. If you
leave out the extension, you'll be able to generate the pdf version
as well, and use either tex + ghostscript or pdftex on the same source.
