if it's an Encapsulated PostScript file, the extension should be .eps
and not .esp.

You certainly mean \includegraphics{}.  I strongly recommend to make
use of the copy&paste facilities provided by your OS instead of typing
everything manually.

The proper place is the directory where the main .tex file (the file
which contains the \documentclass command) resides .
