Stata 8.2, Windows 2000

I wonder if anybody can help me on this problem, which I hope is not out
of bounds on this list given that other software is involved, since it
also involves a Stata user-written command, Michael Mitchell's -graph2tex-
(downloadable from SSC), and others have posted to the list before on
LaTeX-related questions.

Essentially, despite Michael being ultra-helpful as always, neither of us
could find a way to get -graph2tex- to work with my LaTeX package (I use
fpTeX, he uses MikTeX). After firing up -graph2tex- in Stata with

. use, clear
. scatter read write
. graph2tex, epsfile(rw2) ht(5) caption(Reading and Writing Scores)

I then used Michael's suggested code (mixed in with my own)

> \documentclass[11pt]{article}
> %\usepackage{graphics}
> \usepackage{epsfig}
> %\usepackage{graphicx}
> \begin{document}
> \section{graph2tex}
> \subsection{Example 2: More details on {\tt graph2tex}}
> \begin{verbatim}
> . graph2tex, epsfile(rw2) ht(5) caption(Reading and Writing Scores)
> \end{verbatim}
> % exported graph to readwrite.eps
> % exported graph to rw2.eps
> \begin{figure}[h]
> \begin{centering}
>   \includegraphics[height=5in]{rw2}
>   \caption{Reading and Writing Scores}
> \end{centering}
> \end{figure}
> \end{document}

gave me this:

Running `PDFLaTeX Interactive' on `mylog' with ``pdflatex mylog.tex''
This is pdfeTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.11b-2.1 (Web2c 7.5.2)


Overfull \hbox (25.16208pt too wide) in paragraph at lines 11--11
[]/cmtt10@10.95pt/. graph2tex, epsfile(rw2) ht(5) caption(Reading and
Writing Scores)[]

! LaTeX Error: File `rw2' not found.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

l.17   \includegraphics[height=5in]{rw2}

As you can see, -graph2tex- appears to export it correctly (and I've
ensured that LaTeX tries to get the graph from my C:\DATA folder). The
same outcome occurs when taking the % signs off the two /usepackage{}
commands. I've tried every possible permutation, and nothing seems to
work. Any thoughts on this would be highly appreciated.
