\usepackage{bm}. Then $\bm{\alpha}, \bm{beta}, \bm{\gamma}$ will produce you what you want.

There is no such problem with upper-case: thus, $\mathbf{\Gamma}$ does produce the bold version of $\Gamma$. The same thing happens replacing \mathbf by \bf. I'm using texlive 2008 and TeXShop 2.26. Any ideas?
