I'm trying to do one of the Cisco Academy's EIGRP labs, but the lab calls for an 1841 router with Cisco IOS Release 12.4T1 and it also calls for a Cisco WS-c2960-24TT-L.  I'm attempting to do this through GNS, but I wanted to know if I could actually do this router and also how I'm I supposed to do the lab since, from what I understand, GNS does not allow for switches?  

I've attached the lab as well.

I would say that you can get away with GNS3's internal switches for this sort of thing. You can use a 2651XM profile with a serial WIC to approximate the 1841, though the best IOS you'll be able to do is 12.4(15)T.  That should cover anything you're likely to run into in ROUTE.

For SWITCH, I recommend that you hunt for real switches.  The Catalyst 2950 can be found on eBay at very low prices.

In this video training he walks you through EIGRP, OSPF, BGP, and then all 3 for IPV6.  The good part is it's all using GNS3 and he talks you through the setup and config of GNS 3 and provides the LABS that import directly into GNS 3

GNS3 has basic switch functionality built-in.  As long as you don't need to do any actual IOS-level switch configuration (which the ROUTE material should not require) then you can run with the built-in stuff.  Later on, you can integrate your GNS3 lab with a real switch through the TUN/TAP interface.
