Could someone help me with the following:

I am writing up a paper and would like to include my
plots labelled in LaTeX . I am using kile for my
I tried the psfrag option but as I am currently using
Linux, it says it works only with Windows - is that
true? Or is there a Linux version too.

immediately before each relevant \includegraphics shd
do the trick. But it did not for me. 

Please help and do explain in a simple way.
