afaik you have to add the option "pdftex" in \usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}!
Then compile it using _pdflatex_ (e.g. in kile with shortcut Alt+6; view pdf
with Alt+7) and the file should compiled as pdf with the image.
I have attached your changed *.tex file.

Also you might find more information about the graphics package here:

Hope it works for you.
