The script $FGS_HOME/www/bin/apache.init doesn't use the correct command 
to add user on Debian. I should fix this for the next release.

For now, run (as root) :

# groupadd apache
# useradd apache -s /sbin/nologin -d /opt/fgs/www -c 'Apache - FGS' -g 

then you should be able to start your FGS environment:

# . setenv.sh
# fgs start
