Briefly, you have to use the graphics or graphicx package with
in your preamble.

Then, assuming you are using TeXShop, you will want to select Tex and  
DVI from the "Typeset" menu.
Then leave off the ".eps" from your filename.

If you want to use pdflatex (Pdftex), and not "Tex and DVI", then you  
will need to convert your eps to pdf first.
One way of doing this is to double click open it with Preview, then  
save the resulting PDF.
