So I try using "Display" like this:

graph = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 6.3}]

Display[ "graph.eps", graph, "EPSI"]

Then I get a beep (one that Why the Beep?... cannot explain) and there
appears a blinking sign M Link in the far right corner of the menu
bar. I click on it and see a black diamond next to  the MathKernel icon.
So I click on the MathKernel icon and an input dialogue appears:

online help does not help in this case. At least it doesn't help me. All
I want is to get an EPS-version of a graph, one that can be imported by

Where did I go wrong?
