The way many people do this in UNIX is:

a) create a Mathematica postcript file with: Display["tmp.mps", %1]
b) transfer tmp.mps to a regular ps file with psfix, a program that
comes with the Mathematica: psfix < tmp.mps > [after this step,
you can use ghostview to display them]
c) include the resulting ps file in your TeX file with the usual methods
(includegraphics, epsfig..., documentation about them comes with the TeX

I guess the method must be very similar in your case. I think I read
about all this in the Mathematica Handbook.

There's also a TeXForm command you can be interested in, for formulae.
