There is an easy way to include EPS files in WinEdt 6.0, and the later 
versions of 5.

Go to Options then Execution Modes.

Choose PDFTeX or PDFTeXify and go to TeX Options.

You will see a heading for the  Method you wish to employ.

  If you want to include EPS files choose the last one on the list

dvi -> ps -> pdf

Hit OK and you are done .
