How to make greek letters in graphics?

  Dear Mathematica friends,

can I get Greek letters in PostScript graphics by Mathematica 4.2 
running in text mode ? I tried

    p=Plot[x^2,{x,0,1}, AxesLabel->{\[Alpha],\[Beta]}];
    Display["myfigure.ps",p];

but I must add the line
    /Symbol findfont 12 scalefont setfont   
in each PostScript file by hand.
Can this be done by Mathematica alone?

Thanks for any advice.
