The usual way to reach the aim today is, after installing (putting)  
the files into the right places:

	sudo texhash (or sudo maketexlsr)
	sudo updmap-sys --nohash --enable Map=psgreek.map

The last line should put the PS Greek MAP file fragment into the MAP  
files for use with dvips, dvipdfm, or pdfTeX.

(The third example is for a commercial TeX system VTeX, which runs on  
OS/2, AFAIR. The first two examples are meant for pretty old systems.  
Can you imagine to use UTF-8 encoded files and an up-to-date XeTeX/ 
XeLaTeX? This TeX system uses the computer's fonts and you can  
typeset in real Greek.)
