this is okay. The only advantage of using \psgraph is
the fact that you do not need the units.

\documentclass[letterpaper,10pt]{article}

\begin{document}
\psset{axesstyle=axes,Dx=10,Dy=0.25,tickstyle=bottom,
llx=-1.5cm,lly=-1.1cm,urx=1mm,ury=1mm,
xAxisLabel=Domain,xAxisLabelPos={c,-0.2},
yAxisLabel={Membership Grade ($\mu$)},yAxisLabelPos={-14,c}}
\psframebox{% only for Demo
\begin{psgraph}(0,0)(100,1){10cm}{5cm}
\psline(100,1)
\psline(100,0)(0,1)
\end{psgraph}}

\end{document}
