I am used to working in a windows environment and am not sure what to do to fix this error I am recieving.  I have fgs_installer.sh and fgs-mapserver_phpmapscript_4.8.2-1.2-linux-i386.bin in my main or / directory.

On which platform are you installing fgs?  Do you install it as normal

mktemp doesn't seem to be installed on your system.  Test it by doing 
dpkg -l |grep mktemp
