Though I'm not the list's expert, I have dabbled in some languages with
emacs.  From what I've found, there's two steps.  One is to set the
buffer's language environment.  UTF-8 works for many different
languages, Greek included.  Select UTF-8 for the current buffer by
clicking on "Options", "MULE", and "Set Language Environment", then "URF-8".

Next, in order to be able to type in Greek characters, you need to set
the input method.  Do this for the current buffer by clicking on
"Options", "MULE", and "Select Input Method".  In the minibuffer type
"gr", then hit Tab (C-i) and you'll see several Greek input methods.
You'll have to play around with these to find the one(s) you prefer.

After you find what works for you, then of course you can put something
in your ~/.emacs, but I don't know what that would be.
