Frank-

Thanks for the quick response.  While this works fine for the
pdftexing.  I get the following when I run LaTeX:

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
...

l.212 ^^I\includegraphics{rawdata}

? H
I could not locate the file with any of these extensions:
.eps,.ps,.eps.gz,.ps.gz,.eps.Z
Try typing  <return>  to proceed.
If that doesn't work, type  X <return>  to quit.
? epsf
You want to edit file ceco115dHvA.tex at line 212
Output written on ceco115dHvA.dvi (4 pages, 9764 bytes).
Transcript written on ceco115dHvA.log.

Memory allocated: 2770778 bytes.
Time elapsed: 7.8 seconds.

Of course \includegraphics{rawdata.epsf} works with LaTeXing, but
defeats the pdftexing.

Anything obvious that I am still missing?
