For the installation you have to type in exactly this:

wget http://download.osgeo.org/mapserver/fgs-msx/fgs-msx-5.0a-linux-i386.bin
sh fgs-msx-5.0a-linux-i386.bin
(answer prompts ... defaults are often ok)
cd fgs (or wherever you put the fgs install)
. setenv.sh 
fgs install mapserver-base:svn_trunk http://download.osgeo.org/mapserver/fgs-msx
fgs install mapserver-php:svn_trunk http://download.osgeo.org/mapserver/fgs-msx
fgs install chameleon-base:2.6.0-beta1 http://download.osgeo.org/mapserver/fgs-msx

You're right when you're saying that you have to do "fgs stop" before 
removing the fgs package.  To free the port you need to do "ps ax|grep 
httpd" to get the process id of your olg fgs and then "kill - 9 pid".
