Well, since you have .eps files, I would suggest you
a)  switch to using pdflatex so that the end product - the .pdf file - is readily accessible to your colleague via Adobe Reader or some other pdf viewer, which they are probably already comfortable with
b) keep your .eps files, and use the epstopdf package - there have been a few posts related to using eps files in this way within the last to weeks on this very list.

This will allow you to keep your eps files with the benefit of automatic conversion to pdf files for inclusion in your document.
