I have a n eps file I'm trrying to open in Illustrator, but I get this message: "DCA EPS file cannot be opened or embedded. Please place this file using the link option"
How do I do that?  The only information I can find about links or linking in the online help doesn't address this question.

    have you tried placing this eps file in illustrator using File>Place option?
    placing files using this option should show them in Links palette.

    Yes.  That didn't work, but I'm not at a computer with Photoshop right now, so I can't tell what error message i got.
