Welcome to the list!

Here's some tips:

Did you got MapServer working outside the Chameleon environment?
If you are using Firefox, you can use Firebug [1] to get the complete 
URL to your map image. Simply open and click on the Inspect button and 
then on the map. In the HTML console you should see the URL to the map. 
If you copy and paste that in another window or tab, you should get a 
more meaningful error message.
