In the dropdown list of language keyboards there's an option to click (on a mac, anyway) for "Show keyboard viewer". It pops up a small keyboard on the screen that you can move around but keep on top to look at. It also helps remind you what language your keyboard is in! For "ό" I typed the semicolon key to the right of the L followed by the "o"
I bought my Apple desktop in March 2007. So it's an antique. I was amazed to be able to pull up the Greek alphabet keyboard. I followed the link given by Jaye16 in the first "Type what you hear" exercise in the first Basic Greek lesson. It was tricky for me because I am no computer whiz. But I got it done. Now it is SO easy to switch from English to Greek alphabet and back. Maybe you should try again.
No, the Cyrillic alphabet is derived from the Greek alphabet. It was named for St. Cyril, who translated religious texts into Slavic.
