Here is how I use it:
1) Put the command \usepackage{epstopdf}
before \begin{document}
2) Include the .eps graphic file with \includegraphics command as usual.
2) Enable shell interaction with --enable-shell (or something like
that). For example,
pdflatex --enable-shell test.tex.
I do not remember the exact pdflatex option now because I have created 
a latex command in auctex that enables shell interaction.  You can 
always find the correct option by typing pdflatex --help in the command
Hope this helps.
Best regards,
