Hello George,

I see two problems, of which I think I know the solution to the second one.

This is the bit I can't explain yet.

This, combined with the bit above gives me the impression you're using
pdflatex. Regular LaTeX doesn't understand  .png (but you didn't get such an
unknown graphics extension, so I don't think you used regular LaTeX there).

Pdflatex, on the other hand, does not understand .eps files, so that would
explain your error message.

What is the next step to resolve including png
> graphics and/or the unknown eps issue?

various options

1) Check teh log file for more specific error messages

2) use the .eps with regular LaTeX instead of pdflatex

3) find out what's wrong with the .png

4) convert the .png (or .eps) to .pdf or .jpg and see if that works.

Good luck,
