I'm from Japan and not familer with greek characters.

But usually we can use non-latin1 language with MySQL like following:

1. use your charset when "CREATE TABLE t1 (c1 char(1)) default character set = XXX"

2. use "SET NAMES = XXX" when you use MySQL Client

If you use Java, you can configure Connector/J like following

String url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/test";
Properties props = new Properties();
props.put("user", "");
props.put("password", "");
props.put("useUnicode", "true");
props.put("characterEncoding", "XXX");

XXX in the above means the charset name you want to use.

I think not only Connector/J but also the other connectors have setting method like that.

for detail, see document :)
