Thanks for the advice.

Funny thing is that I kept fumbling around and got it to work without 
consciously changing anything related to the error message. (As I 
recall, Ghostscript was installed along with TexShop. As far as I can 
tell, pdfTeX is not involved here.) What I did was change a dummy 
graphic from an eps to a jpg (using Photoshop) and the file 
"example.eps" to "example.jpg".

I wish the error messages were less cryptic and more directly related 
to experience. The "logic" of LaTex usually eludes me. When I solve a 
problem, it's usually by fumbling and trial an error and the solution 
ends up being nothing I would have thought of by other means.

Anyhow, I'm happy that it's working now and I really appreciate the help.
