ASA supports OSPF but not EIGRP??

You would use the commands below to configure eigrp with an autonomus-system number of 100 and assign network , Since network would be a private address network it is on the inside interface.

Router eigrp 100

the ios will not accept 'router eigrp' only router ospf.

I think it's b/c of the ios ver.

The ASA DO support EIGRP, but to do it you need to be  run Version 8.x or later.

After you do an upgrade to that version you will be able to run EIGRP in your network.
