Check the online FAQ (http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html). One of
the entries is "Setting bold Greek letters in LaTeX". In a nutshell, there
are three methods: using the \boldmath command, the bm package, or the
AMS amsbsy package.

Hope this helps (and you also found a new place to get answers),
